      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $8.71
      CO:
      $23.29
      BU (Hero):
      $5.03
      SB:
      $7.81
      BB:
      $5.56


      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J.
      MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB folds, BB raises to $0.50, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.07) K, A, T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($2.07) K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.07.


      Folding preflop JJ is weak imo .
      Am I wrong here???
      Flop is as bad as it can be,since I can see him holding, A or K or posibly both.
      In case he is holding TT am behind too.
      Even if J hits board he could complete draw with hes AQ, QQ hands.
      SO only Q saves the day here, and thats the reason I called hes bet on flop.
      I think its a mistake imo.

      What do you think about it?

      Hello Sinnology,

      I'd just fold it on flop to avoid further mistakes like we hit set or whatsoever while he could easily have straight there already. The odds ain't that good either to Call for GS. And we even can't be sure that he is going to pay us off when we hit our GS.

      Best regards.
