      Could I fold this flop?I have to think it's very possible there on a draw or under pr here.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:heart: , T:heart:
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.23) T:diamond: , 5:diamond: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.22, Hero raises to $0.65 (All-In), MP2 calls $0.43.

      Turn: ($1.53) 7:spade:
      River: ($1.53) K:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $1.53

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2c)
      Hero shows (Qh Th)

      MP2 wins with three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2c)

      QTs is, according to the charts, part of our stealing range and not part of our value range. Meaning we will raise an unopened pot but will not raise limpers.

      That having been said: IMHO TQs is a very nice hand to isolate a mp2 limper with a VPIP of 40. I would just be worried about the lack of pfr. I would also check his fold to cbet and hopefull see something above 55%.

      The flop is as good as it gets. Going back to the charts we know tp is not enough to go broke with but if we dont go broke here then why did we raise preflop?

      I would have played it the same.

      well a TP and a flush draw would be asking too much,but I like 2 ask.

      I think on 2NL, you can shove but also call his potsized donk.

      EVwise it isnt a big difference

      Best regards,
