      Can I play it this way? Or should I just call flop? His stats are 21/7 over ~40 hands, not really a big sample.

      And thx for help with previously posted hands. ;)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, A.
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.08, 5 folds, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) K, Q, J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, MP2 raises to $0.24, Hero raises to $1.99, MP2 calls $0.44.

      Turn: ($2.86) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($2.86) K (2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.86.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings(As Ad).
      MP2 shows a full-house, kings full of queens(Qh Ks).

      MP2 wins with a full-house, kings full of queens(Qh Ks).

      Hello QubaBuba,

      The problem is that he will very often here have a 2pair type of hand, although time to time he might come up with a pair+draw type of of hand as well and while he ain't even full stack then it ain't that wrong to go broke here either. If he would be more likely full stack then I would be as well more inclined to fold.

      And of course your are welcome about previous hands, and I will be waiting for new ones. :) Meanwhile good luck on tables!

      Best regards.
