      Ok, I'm losing my mind over this hand!! Was the lay down right?

      This guy Called raises from the BB or SB several times before I think. I defintely expected him to call my BB raise as I thought he'd think I was bluffing.

      I did not like the King on the flop but bet the pot thinking he'd fold or call. then he raised me but only a min raise. This table had a lot of min raising going on tho.

      Other things I know about the player:
      He was playing 15 tables BUT he was actually in a lot of hands.
      VIP 28% PFR 16% over 59 hands.
      I didn't know his BB/SB defence stats at the time so let's evaluate it as I noticed he'd defenced it alot.
      Then maybe add in the stats I now know which are 2/2 SB defence and 2/3BB defence.

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:club: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) 2:diamond: T:heart: K:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.62, BB raises to $1.30, fold

      BB wins $1.80

      Once I saw the check raise I thought either all in or fold. I just thought he wouldn't do it with anything but a king but I think, on the other hand, it's likely he's going with air. Sigh...

      I hate this guy! lol

      Hello Edukator99,

      As you said he plays on a lot of tables then I would also expect him to have even more often there a hand since he doesn't have time to bluff that often, and minraise could easily indicate to just Kx type of hand. So ain't wrong if you fold there, well played.

      Best regards.
