Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

Play hand

\$0.02/\$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

Known players:
BB:
\$3.58
MP1:
\$5.07
MP2:
\$2.00
MP3:
\$5.05
CO:
\$7.00
BU:
\$12.67
SB (Hero):
\$1.95

Preflop: Hero is SB with K, A.
MP1 raises to \$0.20, 4 folds, Hero raises to \$0.60, BB folds, MP1 calls \$0.40.

Flop: (\$1.25) 3, Q, 9 (2 players)
Hero bets \$0.70, MP1 raises to \$1.40, Hero ?

MP1 is a regy.

In my opinion I think we got a set here: 99, QQ or better.

What would you do in this situation?

Hello Marlon,

Preflop is well played, no comments on that

The flop is a cBet yes most of the times as checking back mostly opens yourself up for bluffbets you can't call

So when he c/minraises I think his range is pretty strong + you do not have 6 clean outs. So according to Pot odds (if you need help on this then please reply) one has to fold here after your cbet gets raised

Best regards,
Gerv

Well, first of all, as you said. I folded that hand.

But how I calculate the pot odds when there's a raise?

The pot pos-flop is 1,25. I cbet 0,70 and he raises 1,40.

I understand that I have to pay 0,70 to win 1,25. So 1,25:0,70. That gives me 1.78:1. Let's say that the odds are in the best situation 4:1 or 5:1.

If I did right, it's an easy fold.

And thanks for you feedback.

Potodds:

pot: \$1.25 (preflop action)+ \$0.7 (our cbet) + \$1.4 ( his raise) = \$3.35
call : \$0.7

Potodds: \$3.35: \$0.7
-> 4.8:1
