      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K, K.
      UTG1 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds, UTG1 calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.66) 2, 8, 9 (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.63, CO folds, UTG1 raises to $1.68, Hero calls $1.05.

      Turn: ($4.02) A (2 players)
      UTG1 raises to $2.43, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.02.

      was the call on flop ok? i was pretty sure he mined set, and should have folded that raise.

      Bet smaller on the flop. Check/raise if very ugly ugly play here. If you think he has set you fold it here. But if you think he's drawing or has TT-QQ you should reraise-shove on the flop since you won't like almost any turn or river and there will be only $2 to call.

      Bet/fold the flop if you don't know the player and make notes of him for next similar situation.

      Calling flop and folding the turn is a big mistake.

      Hello kapazz,

      Against such an nitty opponent I really prefer to just Bet/Fold there since he will often do such a move with sets and rarely with pure draws. I'd bet a bit smaller, ~$0.45. Also take into consideration that such Limp/Call preflop very often indicates to a PP therefore we have a pretty easy Bet/Fold postflop against him. Calling his raise doesn't make sense if you want to continue then go broke but what ain't the case in this situation.

      Best regards.

      imo push or fold...there is no sence to just call his re-raise(flop)..situation on turn will not change anything..he wouldnt re-raise you with flush draw
