[NL2-NL10] NL5 - the right time to fold TPTK

      BB has VPIP / PFR 27/14 and AF 2,3.

      Up to my bet on the turn, I don't see how I could have played the hand differently. Then after BB's raise I'm not sure whether I should fold TPTK or push all in.

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, A.
      2 folds, CO calls $0.05, BU calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.8) 5, T, K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50, BU folds.

      Turn: ($1.8) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, BB raises to $2.50, Hero raises to $4.26, BB calls $1.75(All-In).

      River: ($10.31) 5 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $10.31.

      Results follow:

      BB shows a full-house, tens full of fives(Ts Td).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and fives(Kd As).

      BB wins with a full-house, tens full of fives(Ts Td).

      Just fold it, this kind of line is usually very strong. TPTK ain´t enough for that.

      5 doesn´t really make sense but on NL5 one never knows. However if he was on a set he is now on a full house, or he can have a straight, two pair ...

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger here for 2 limpers and as well being OOP, ~$0,30.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't think that you will face a lot worse hands there, rather very strong hands, at least 2pairs therefore I am more often just Bet/Folding the turn.

      Best regards.
