      $1.86
      MP2:
      $2.45
      MP3:
      $2.44


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      UTG1 raises to $0.08, 5 folds, BU raises to $0.24, 3 folds, 2 folds, UTG1 folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.11.

      I noticed at one point, that I don't really analyse situations well.
      I either talk myself into raising/calling/pushing, or I talk myself out of it.

      After a raise from UTG, which is strong enough, and a standard 3Bet from the button, I just didn't feel like fighting.

      Any way I was in this pot, I was way out of pos against two strong showings, and I just plain chickened out.

      I saw only real viable option was shove, but I just did not feel like it at that moment.

      Right move? Or jam tart?

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      No way, I wouldn't shove it here like ever unless I really know the BU is doing the 3bet light and as well the UTG range is kinda loose as well. Good fold!

      Best regards.
