    Flop is 7d Jd 4c

    SB checks

    UTG bets 3.28 bb into 2 players.

    You have position and you flopped middle set.


    — This is a great spot to flat. The SB has a ~10 bb stack. If they have a pair or a decent draw, This is an ok spot for them to jam, not ideal, but maybe a last resort. By flatting, you represent a huge range of hands (some weak, some strong). By raising now, that range would shrink to mostly value hands and very few bluffs on a J high unconnected board. Instead, calling might induce them to over-value their hand or perhaps the UTG will continue c-betting the turn.


    — There is some merit to raising the flop to build a pot however the board texture is not one to be scared of. Raising might scare away both opponents leaving you with a 12 bb pot and no showdown. You have the nuts and should try to get more value whenever possible.


    — Don’t Fold
