      UTG+1 ($10.35)
      CO ($10.78)
      Hero ($10)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: A:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.20, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.65, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.45

      FLOP ($1.45) 8:heart: T:diamond: J:heart:

      UTG bets $1, Hero calls $1

      TURN ($3.45) 8:heart: T:diamond: J:heart: 4:club:

      UTG bets $2, Hero folds

      UTG wins $3.22

      His stats were 48/16/10 (3bet). I was thinking of raise-shoving flop but he's calling me with any pair on this flop - AT, AJ. I couldn't just fold on flop? Is that ok?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      I am more often inclined to just fold it right on flop. Often time such donks are pretty strong.

      Best regards.

      I had an extremely similar hand AK late last night, only in my case the flop came
      TKx
      The villain was 54/3 with about 6 or so agg
      he bet out on the flop, and I raised then he called.
      In the end he held pocket tens and I lost a good part of my stack.

      Evan maniacs get good hands now and again.
