      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 4, 5.
      MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 4, 6, 5 (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, CO raises to $0.24, BU folds, SB folds, BB folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.2.

      Looking back at this it seems like it was a pretty tight laydown to the 2-bet, I think I probably should have three bet and folded to a shove. Though there are a few hands that beat me out there 44, 55, especially 66, 78o, 78s, and lots of strong draws including OESFDs... so fairly tight but not horrible I think.

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      Preflop: Rather just fold the hand or raise it up if you want to play such hands, but I wouldn't really recommend playing such hands at the beginning. Get to know the basics and then widen up your range.

      As played
      Flop: Bet/Fold is likely better in such a multiway pot, we often get raised here from a stronger hand.

      Best regards.
