      Preflop, villain min3bets and gives me fair odds to call with pocket pair. His shove seems very strange, but I have rather chosen safe side and folded. May I call something like this vs. unknown (his first hand on the table)?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):
      $13.11
      CO:
      $10.00
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB:
      $19.11
      BB:
      $12.21
      MP2:
      $3.79


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 6, 6.
      CO posts deadblind, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, CO raises to $1.00, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($2.15) Q, 2, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO raises to $9.00, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.15.

      Hello meridius,

      Preflop: Yeah, we can like Call for the set and set only.
      Flop: Nah, I rather never Call such situations, way too risky and with big variance. Nice fold.

      Best regards.
