      SB: $49.65
      BB: $14.10
      UTG: $57.95
      UTG+1: $55.40
      MP: $9.35
      Hero (CO): $54.70
      BTN: $52.85

      Pre-Flop: Q:heart: Q:diamond: dealt to Hero (CO)
      UTG calls $0.50, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP folds, [color:red]Hero raises to $3[/color], 3 folds, UTG calls $2.50, [color:red]UTG+1 raises to $12[/color], [color:red]Hero does what?[/color]

      utg+1 is 35/10

      Notice the strange play by utg+1 - limp behind a limper, then comes over the top.
      Utg is likely to be weak because of his limp/call.

      What is my play here?

      Do I:
      a) fold,
      b) call,
      c) all-in,
      d)reraise to 36$,
      e) other (explain)?

      How do I continue on the flop?

      taking into consideration that you are in CO, which usually is a good spot to "punish" the limpers or steal the blinds and that UTG is obviously under pockets (so UTG+1 "knows" UTG is going to fold to a reraise), UTG+1's game could easily be a so called squeeze play, so I propably would go AI here, if you reraise to something like 36$ you're commited anyway. You could reraise to something like 27$ and fold if villain reraises again but I don't think that's a good play. Sometimes you might just call and go AI on flop after he makes his contibet, no matter what the flop is, but this has big risks ofcourse ;)

      I agree with degnic. Looks like a squeeze resteel attempt. I would push here. KK+ is very unlikely, no reasonable player would limp it from early position.

      Considering the stats of the villain, i dont think he thinks about ur squeezeplay. This however looks very much like beginners would play AA/KK or sometimes AK to me. Therefor i would fold.

      Hi debelinko!

      I agree with Laurenz1988. Most of the time you will see AA or KK here so I would simply fold.

      Good luck at the tables!
