      Same Villain as before (48/26/9 VP$IP/PFR/AF). Was it a smart move to fold? I thought there was a high chance he is bluffing, but I had nothing, so even a small pair beats me here... - unless I get A or K, which is 1:8, not that likely...
      What about the preflop play?

      What a bad play!

      When he reraises you you have only two options - to shove it all-in or fold (which is not a good idea against such a loose player since his range is very big).

      Don't do this to yourself and your money. If other players see it they're going to abuse you.

      I usually don't like gambling and shoving with AKs for 140bb is something I don't do but against such loose players this is almost a must. Sometimes he's gonna show you pocket pairs but most of the times you have him dominated.

      Hello feketepok,

      Preflop: Problem is here, where you made a mistake. You had to shove it there directly or just fold the hand. In this situation and because it's NL2 I don't even mind if we go broke there.

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, you can likely fold and save your $1.

      Best regards.
