MP2: Hero: AcJd raise $15 (stack= $245)
SB: villain calls $15 (stack= $549)
Both UTG+1 & UTG +2 call raise
Flop: As Qs 8d
SB (villain) checks, UTG+1 & UTG+2 both check, Hero bets $30. SB (villain) then check raises all-in. UTG+1 & UTG+2 fold.
Thoughts on if the hero should call in this situation or fold?
Without reads, it does seem risky to call this here. I'd like to have info on a villain to make a call like this. I honestly just fold here, and just watch this guy very close from this point forward.
I don't mind the cbet. I know some suggested not betting, but I don't want to give a free card to broadway draws and FD hands, so I'm fine with betting for value/protection. Sometimes we can get in tricky spots checking back flop here because we under-rep our hand, and we kinda are in no mans land on the turn as a result. So I think bet flop. No FPS. Just bet.
When the dude just hauls it though, without a fantastic read I just don't think we can call here.
