      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $17.60
      CO:
      $5.29
      BU:
      $1.83
      SB:
      $3.30
      BB:
      $8.95
      UTG1 (Hero):
      $2.41
      UTG2:
      $7.86
      MP1:
      $4.00
      MP2:
      $2.45


      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $0.15, UTG2 calls $0.15, 3 folds, CO calls $0.15, 2 folds, BB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.62) 5, 4, A (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.10, CO folds, BB folds, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.62.

      Playing without HU / stats to get the basic system pat.

      My question: On the Flop and after I have checked. Having regard to betsize and the fact that it is now headsup how adviseable is a c/r. At the time the bet looked very much like a FD that did not want to be raised so I considered turning my hand into a bluff.

      Hey mineriva,

      Nice hand. I would play the same way or perhaps called the flop bet and re-evaluate turn. But since you're OOP this will be very hard to play and he did bet into 4-way pot, so I like the hand as played. I also don't like raising flop, because you can't know whether he gives up his FD and if he calls you will never know where you are on the turn and river.

      Best regards,
