      Just wanted to evaluate few simpler situations as well, just because lately I am losing a lot and need to make sure that I am getting at least basics right:

      Villain is a rock 9/3/infinite/30 (122 hands) and I just figured my aces are no good anymore on paired board. Please evaluate:

      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Holdem
      Everest Poker
      10 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($3.11)
      UTG+1 ($3.35)
      UTG+2 ($10.18)
      MP1 ($5.90)
      MP2 ($5.31)
      Hero ($10)
      CO ($9.50)
      BTN ($10.10)
      SB ($7.01)
      BB ($2.89)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 10 players) Hero is MP3 J:diamond: A:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 1 fold, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Flop: 6:club: A:club: 7:heart: ($1.30, 3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, CO folds, SB raises to $1.60, Hero calls $0.80

      Turn: 7:diamond: ($4.50, 2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero folds

      Final Pot: $6.50

      SB wins $6.20 (net +$2.20)

      Hero lost $2
      CO lost $0.40

      If 9/3 c/r you on that board I´d likely would fold even AK, since I think you see 66/77 most of the times rather than some kind of draws. So I like b/f flop rather than b/c and then folding to turn bet

      May i ask about Villains raise size on flop? I don`t have enough experience even to ask right question, but when i saw this hand for some unknown reason raise size looked strange

      yeah, min-raise doesn´t look that strong and there is an argument just calling his min-raise, but I don´t really see 9/7 take that line with bluffs or draws. he maybe sometimes have AK to find out where is at, but also he can play sets that way.

      I have to agree. There is no point in calling the flop bet and folding to blank turn. Waste of 8BBs.
