      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $20.55
      CO (Hero):
      $6.55
      BU:
      $3.52
      SB:
      $3.13
      BB:
      $3.33
      MP2:
      $6.51


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4, 4.
      MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.50, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.27.

      Villain is uknown guy with 9 hands and 0.0 3bet so far.
      I would be IP if I would of call, but dispite of all that playing with 44 postflop would be really hard unles I hit a set.
      So I just folded.
      Opinons ?

      I think you have implied odds to call and try to hit a set here. You're within the "call 20" rule (i.e. his stack is 20x the size of your call) and you are in position post flop.

      The less he 3bets - the more justifiable would be the call here imho.

      Hello Sinnology,

      Against his play you can easily just set min there. You are even getting like 22:1 there and those are very good odds, so Call and of course we have position on him. Will be even easier to extract value when we do hit and he could have a very strong hand, which he is likely going broke anyways. Since limp/raise usually means a very strong hand.

      Best regards.
