      Final Pot: $1.49

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Ac Kc)
      Hero shows two-pair, eights and fours (4s 4d)

      Hero wins with two-pair, eights and fours (4s 4d)

      Even though I won this pot would I be better folding the turn in spots like this. I think I had to call on the flop and once I called the turn I had to also call the small bet on the river too. Maybe more often than not they have an over pair.

      Hello penno10,

      Yeah, rather fold it on turn against unknown, doesn't make sense to play this way. In long run you should lose more money than you earn by that playing against unknown this way. And as you Called the turn, doesn't make sense to fold on river. Also I'd like to add that try to play your set mining hands just like fit/fold on such early limits, don't overplay them. They are very easily played also by this way if you don't hit just fold and you will earn a lot money with them in long run.

      Best regards.
