      Hello Filipstan,

      Against his stack it depends a lot on the reads and stats. He is more kinda passive then you likely made a good fold and actually against unknown I'd rather also prefer to fold it there. Just for the reason that our kicker ain't that strong.

      Best regards.

      Hi,

      as I go through your hands here, I would advise to work on your preflop game ;) A5s ain´t really a strong hand.

      As played I think fold is right, he won´t raise you with worse, I believe.
