      SB ($1.90)
      BB ($8.17)
      UTG ($16.79)
      UTG+1 ($5.14)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:club: , A:heart:
      UTG calls $0.10, UTG+1 calls $0.10, 1 folds, MP1 raises to 0.2, 1 folds, Hero raises to 0.8, 5 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.70, MP1 calls $0.60,

      Flop: A:spade: , 7:club: , 8:diamond: ( $2.65 )

      Turn: 4:club: ( $11.33 )

      River: 6:spade: ( $11.33 )

      Final Pot: $10.77

      In hindsight i realize that i'm beat by any two pair and any set and should probably have folded. It seemed like a bluff at the time and i just couldn't walk away from the hand. Is it a clear fold, and should i have raised more preflop?

      I would make the preflop raise about ~1$, and fold this on flop

      PF raise could be a bit bigger but as played is OK.

      I'd call on the flop for three reasons:

      1)I'm a calling station.

      2)Many players at NL10 will check their strong hands and bet their weaker ones. A CRAI would make a lot of sense for this villain given stack sizes (assuming he holds a decent hand of course).

      3)You don't want to be folding TPGK with approx. 50BB effective stacks too often as a matter of general principle.

      It is unpossible to fold AQ, after reraising preflop, on this flop against a 50bb stack.
