      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, K.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, SB calls $0.01, Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.06, SB calls $0.06. Hero folds.

      SB checks, Hero bets $0.14, MP3 calls $0.14, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.52) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, MP3 calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.12) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.62, MP3 raises to $2.98. Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $4.72.

      Like the title says, was this fold too tight? Seems to me like he could have limp called pre with A9s or some such hand, T9s etc, got the flush draw on the turn (can't believe how little people fold these on micro stakes) and landed trips on river. Do I have equity to call the river shove here?

      Howdy,

      I think it is fine here. We can't exclude hands like 33/55 from his range and 9x is definitely part of his limp/calling range and I wouldn't count on him being capable turning Qx in a bluff so huge, so I think it's better to fold.
      By the way, we should bet slightly bigger on each street to get value from Qx and other random hands.

      Good luck!
