2 folds, <font color="red">UTG+1 raises to 40</font>, <font color="red">Hero raises to 140</font>, 2 folds, BTN calls 140, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls 100

Often I will shove on this, but I'm pretty sure folding is the correct move. Any help?

Button definitely looks like he could have turned the flush, or at worst a strong flush draw, maybe with a pair. Or I guess he could have flopped the straight but that seems unlikely. Much as I hate to fold as soon as we hit our hand, I think it's the right move here.

Whaaaaaaaat ?

Preflop is ok, bet more on the flop (300ish).

As played, call the turn getting 4:1 . 77-JJ are part of his range for sure.

(also why does the converter say one is all-in ?)

I think betting the flop and then folding the turn for the same amount getting 4-1 is far from optimal. I think you can call and re-evaluate on the river, probably chekc/calling another reasonable bet if a brick falls

preflop is ok.
I also bet more on the flop..
I'm not checking this turn! I bet out and see how my opp. reacts.

Why Cbet here? i find such cbets pretty -ev in early game with missed AK on baby flop..Especially such small bet does't make sense at all.
Check flop, then call turn bet.. he doesn't have to have a flush and pot odds are real good.

Um... yeah. After looking at this again, I don't know what the hell I was thinking. I definitely call the turn.
