      Is it ok to call PF here ?


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $1.88
      CO (Hero):
      $5.26
      BU:
      $3.62
      SB:
      $2.62
      BB:
      $4.00
      UTG2:
      $1.48
      MP1:
      $4.00
      MP2:
      $4.45


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4, 4.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BU raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($0.86) K, 8, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.86) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.82, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.86.


      I know the requirement of having 20* bet size in stack is not met, but the pot was too high so I called. Do you think it´s ok or should I´ve rather folded preflop ?

      HI acceleration123!

      Preflop you are given so nic odds that you should call min raises with PP. On the other hand folding preflop will not do any harm, as you can really continue only if you hit set.

      Postflop: I am just check folding, he might have QQ that is why he check behind or slowplaying monster A:hK, JJ. I do not believe that you can push him away from hand, so I would just check fold turn as you did.

      nice hand

      Thanks :)

      In fact, almosts everything beats me on that kind of flop, and since the guy had quite tight PF 3bet range I knew I can forget about bluffing here.
