      - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (SB): $2.03
      BB: $3.91
      UTG: $1.57
      MP: $1.47
      CO: $1.88
      BTN: $5.41

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 8:club: A:club:

      UTG calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.08, 4 players) K:club: A:spade: 9:club:
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG bets $1.55 and is all-in, fold, fold, fold

      I wanted C/R here... and if someone called I would bet for about 1/4 pot on turn. It was my plan for this hand... but this plan was burned when he moved all in...
      BTW what would u do if u were me? Call or like me fold in this situation?
      Or maybe u would raise on flop?

      Hello BGawli,

      While you haven't really invested much into the pot then folding ain't a mistake. :) Likely just avoids the variance, although I'd just bet and then maybe even ship it.

      Small example of the equity I'd consider us getting:

      Board: A:spade: K:club: 9:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    49.46%  42.38%   7.07% { 99, AKs, AJs-A9s, A7s-A6s, K9s, AKo, AJo-A9o, A6o, K9o }
      UTG+1  50.54%  43.47%   7.07% { Ac8c }

      So there it ain't wrong even if you go broke here. :)

      Best regards.

      as I mentioned in one of the post... freeplay is my leak... it's a reason why I folded...
      because I didn't want invest whole stack in freeplay... I was new at the table and I didn't know my opponents so I folded... but this guy played next hand same... after few hands he lost whole stack... if I knew this I wouldn't fold

      Sometimes those things happen but usually such shoves don't really make sense.

      You can contact me easily via the PokerStrategy community and I might even send my Skype or something similar.
