      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:heart: , J:diamond:
      UTG1 raises to $0.10, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, UTG1 raises to $1.40, Hero calls $0.95.

      Flop: ($2.87) 9:club: , 8:spade: , 7:spade: (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $2, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.87

      I equilated this situation from left and right, it seems that my preflop call was stupid in the first place, deepstack min-raising and then re-raising me seems pretty strong - if he wanted to just collect the blinds with something like 88,77 or AQ etc, why not to open with stronger raise instead? Then he c-bets with 2/3 of the pot, so I think it was a good fold here. I put him at something like TT+. The initial min-raise might even be a trap?

      Thank you in advance for your opinion :club:

      Hello skiffcz,

      You will like so often see very strong hands there which pick such a line, therefore I would rather fold it against this line preflop. Unless I have really other reads on him.

      Best regards.
