      Hello, this is my first post here at pokerstrategy.com. :)
      I'm doubting if I made the right play over here.


      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)      

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , A:spade:
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.17, Hero raises to $0.40, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.23.

      Flop: ($0.86) Q:heart: , J:heart: , T:diamond: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP1 raises to $1.76, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $3.12


      Any comments please?

      With scary flop like that you should raise more on flop. I think folding was right here because I see him calling with AK, but ofcourse in those limits I'm not sure.

      I basically fold because of the stats i have on him( VP$IP%/PFR%/ total hands, 8/4 over 160 hands. )and his utg raise.

      So when he bet preflop I put him on the range TT, JJ, QQ, KK, AKs because of his very tight stats. And with KK he would have problably reraised me allin preflop.

      Hi diedobal!

      First of all: Welcome at PokerStrategy! I hope you enjoy it here.

      Concerning your hand: Excellent analysis. That's exactly why you should fold to a check/raise here. I would have played it the same except from the flop bet. I would have bet slighly more here (~$0.65).

      Good luck at the tables!
