Fold. Plenty of time/chips to keep above the blinds with your own open aggression. The fact that he's raising more than 1/3 his stack here makes an easy decision easier.

Edit: Yeah, wrong "K" guy - not the shortie. Same answer though...fold.

UTG raise. I fold.

Yeah villian is UTG, which isnt saying much in a short handed game, but I'd still respect this raise for at least two overs. Just fold and keep yourself out of trouble, you have plenty of blinds to steal.

This is a leak in my game... Always make this mistake... I push he flips over AJ and spikes J on flop....

Took a page out of Nato's book and started swinging on myself. I showed me.

Dogger have you taken a look at SNGPT? If not check it out.

I usually fold unless I have a read on the UTG raiser...

And even then I fold at least 1/2 the time.
