      calling OOP is surely mistake, 4bet/fold instead? What size of 4-bet?

      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:heart: , K:heart:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0,17, 4 folds, BU raises to $0,35, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,18.

      Flop: ($0,77) J:spade: , T:diamond: , 6:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0,77) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0,5, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,77

      Hello YourDoom,

      Yep, exactly. As you said your own already, Calling is kinda crappy, since we will be playing OOP and also we aren't even sure if we will get paid if we hit our A or K, therefore I'd often prefer either to 4bet/broke or just fold it directly. Since it's NL5 I don't even mind to go broke. I'd 4bet to $1. If you think that he opponent is more like nitty one then you can even just fold it there, not put yourself into trouble spots.

      Best regards.
