Fold.

6c completes any possible draws that UTG1 may has, or he's already holding monster (set+) and betting to protect his hand (bad play IMO but likely).

UTG1 plays passively on flop, he's either holding monster or drawing.

Hero can only beats a bluff. UTG1 won't shove with 1 pair here, the smallest he has (even though very unlikely) is 2 pairs. Hero can't even beat any other 2 pairs.

I think you put yourself in a difficult spot there by calling UTG2's raise preflop. You're going to have to fold your hand there pre-flop and waste some loose change if a 3-squeeze comes from late position, or if UTG limp raises. I suppose one could make a case for flatting your hand from the cut-off onwards, but by and large I think folding there pre-flop is the best play.

Given that you'd already called, calling UTG2's c-bet is really the only thing you can do, cause you're not folding now you've hit the board, and you're not raising cos everyone and his mother probably has you beat at that point.

When UTG1 leads the turn, he's most likely made that flush, and is defending his hand against 2 pairs and sets. He's not going to lead for such a large amount with a set or a straight on a flush board.

Even though I'm not partial to the call pre-flop, calling and check folding was pretty much all you coulda done under the circumstances.

Just my 2 cents. =]

Pre-flop call is bad since there are 5 players acting behind you... 6-max game it would be good, but not FR.

Flop.... you can't just call.. you either fold now or raise it.
1 of the 2 here is always on a draw, UTG2 bet screams so much weakness (he has like Ax hand here or 2 paints so many times which missed to board) because of draw heavy board.
I would raise it here hoping UTG1 does not hold a monster and folds.

So if your not sure about your post-flop game you can fold. If you know what your doing you can raise this to about 4.5$ and continue playing the board on later streets since your IP.
