    Yeah question here is should i call or raise. UTG raiser was a loose guy who opens pretty weak even from early position and is agressive. What inclined me here to raise was the big deadmoney in the pot and also that i hold the Js and Ksas well. So there is not that much implied odds. Also i have 50% equity against anything but a set.

    For 100BB it is a decent spot to get it in. Not only because of dead money, but also because of the postflop action dictating you are rarely against a set here. Original raiser, who raised UTG, and should not have many 77xx or 33xx in his range, and on rare occasion will wake up with TTxx. Guy who overcalls always has a draw, and never a set or even top2 because he has to raise this drawy flop with such hands.

    So, yeah, raise here versus such range, with dead money and hopefully with a bit of fold equity, since when you c/r big here you show extreme strength and someone may fold hands with decent equity like 789J, T89J, maybe even top2 might fold if players are solid enough to find such a fold, which is always a good result.

    If you were 150BB + deep, then I prefer c/c on flop with decent odds on flop call and good implied odds if we hit.
