If you're going to re-raiise, it needs to be all-in. I'd just call, however.

Is there anything wrong with seeing what the turn brings before you start putting tons of chips in here?

I call and lead the turn, but I'd love to see some arguments for raising. I'm having trouble seeing what Villain is raising with that we want to play a huge pot against. We are getting a great price for our draw on the turn, but we are OOP so a raise from us will not get us a free card. Thoughts?

Two arguments for raising:
- Hero has an ewuity edge
- Hero's semibluff may push opponent off a better hand

There are problems with these arguments, however. First, if 5the opponent has 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], we don't have an equity edge.

Second, many better hands won't fold, such as trips.

Hero should probably just call and see how the turn develops. Even if you make your hand it might be NG, so remember that.

Anyone have a problem with raising 4 BBs UTG with a drawing hand that plays best with a few more players and some more dead money in the pot? Why would you want to play a hand like TJ suited OOP most likely HU?

It is hard to say what he holds at this point... a MP player cold called a UTG raise... you should be holding a quality show down type hand calling raises from UTG in that spot given there are a lot of players behind to act... I would doubt he has a set.... Against an over pair you're only 48/52.. and against something like A8 you're around 59/41.... I don't see a whole lot of overpairs at this limit folding.... and no way an 8 folds at this limit ever... so I would think calling here is best and pushing a good turn card...

what if a brick falls on the turn and you didn't push on the flop?

Hero has to play carefully even if he makes his hand. He could be up against the boat, and if a 7 falls making hero's straight he could still be behind a boat because 87 is a likely hand for villain to have if he has an 8. I don't think pushing is a great idea even if hero hits his hand because I think it folds out what we beat and doesn't fold out what beats us.

Q or 7 Hearts gives you straight flush. You'll stack him if he's got the full house. However, 2 of 46 outs are not good odds. The other Q, and 7 are often crying hands, particularly Q where AK kills you.
Mean while, you have nayda. Nutttin. Zip. Ever hear of restraint. With probable trips on board you won't bluff him off this pot. Call.
