Easy fold?

So he is basically repping set of threes and twos or he is bluffing with flush draw but there is not much combos of that. Easy fold everytime?

Re: Easy fold?

I wouldn't expect to see an UTG+1 player with these stats showing up here with 33 or 22 ever. It would be too easy to be squeezed here...especially from the aggro player in late middle position.
I would expect to see this villain 3bet any pocket pair of JJ or higher here.
I would expect to see villain here with hands like AT-AKhh, KJhh, KQhh.
I would shove my chips in here and expect to get called by most of these hands a good portion of the time where you are still the favorite.
He could have TT here too, but I would still put my stack in.
I am curious what other people think about this hand.

Re: Easy fold?

Sorry...I misread this hand. I thought you had AJ.
I'd fold.

Re: Easy fold?

Interesting spot given that you have some info on opponent but not a huge amount, and here you really do need a decent amount of info to aid a decision. Specifically (1) what is his calling range UTG+1 vs UTG open; (2) within that how many flush draw combinations are there? AQs? AJs? KQs? KJs? QJs? How many suited connectors? (3) What proportion of the time does he play draws aggressively?

As things stand all the info you have is that he may have a wider-than-average calling range (though he may not), that he may 3bet a fair proportion of hands (or at least that he is 3betting his QQ+, which is relevant here) but not enough info to help narrow things down to what you need.

I don't mind the flop call, the Ten on the turn puts some straight draws out there, he might check back some of the time on the turn with his flush draws so a fold at that point isn't horrible.

Not sure what I'd do tbh. If you call, what is your plan for a non-heart river? What is your plan for a Jack? What is your plan for a Queen?

Re: Easy fold?

Yeah I don't like the re-raise on the flop. There isn't many weaker hands he's going to be doing that with.

He could have a set yeah, but most of the time (from what I've observed) players at these stakes love to slow play sets. For your HUD stat I'd add on the aggression factor. It's normally a bit more of a straight forward indicator of how passive someone is. Would help in this situation as a passive player taking this line definitely shouts monster. On the other hand if he's usually aggressive it could literally be anything lol
