Hey guys,

Just a few hands into the session so no reads on Villain.

Is this a very easy call? If so, why?


poker stars - No Limit Hold'em Cash Game - $0.25/$0.50 Blinds - 8 Players - (LegoPoker Hand History Converter)
SB: $82.60
BB: $43.85
UTG: $29.00
UTG+1: $93.65
Hero (MP1): $47.50
MP2: $46.45
CO: $55.55
BTN: $38.50
Preflop: Hero is dealt A:club: Q:spade: (8 Players)
UTG calls $0.50, UTG+1 folds, [color:red]Hero raises to $2.00[/color], 3 folds, SB calls $1.75, BB folds, UTG calls $1.50
Flop: ($6.50) 4:heart: Q:heart: 6:diamond: (3 Players)
SB checks, UTG checks, [color:red]Hero bets $4.00[/color], SB folds, [color:red]UTG raises all-in to $27.00[/color], Hero?

Sorry about the formatting, for some reason I'm not getting the cool colour boxes.

Imo this seems like a weak play, maybe flush draw or weaker Q. I would be afraid of AA or a set but would he being pushing that hard? Would he slow play AA like that? I would not believe him so I think with no read you have to call it and for the best.

Standard move is to call here for me.

Flush draw may do this as well as weaker queens, KQ or QJ...

That + fact that hes relatively shortstacked tells me were ahead of his range here.

Very good guys. I called and he flipped QJ.

You're both spot on.
