      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.16, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.45.


      So, I just played this hand on FullTilt NL2 a few minutes ago, and I need confirmation that this was a good fold. Unfortunately I didn't have any reads, this was one of my first hands at the table. Also, any other observations to the line played are welcome.

      Thanks.

      Hello Hilto,

      Preflop: Since we are OOP and I don't want to give them good odds for a Call I would even raise it bigger here like $0,40.
      Postflop: You can as well just CBet the flop as well. And yes, likely did a good fold on river. You are more often behind there.

      Best regards.
