      Hello my favourite evaluators! :)

      Should I have folded right to the c/r on flop or should I have played for stack?

      I had no significant stats on him but I did expect him to have AQ at minimum, more likely 88.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.10, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.17) 8, A, Q (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.80, MP1 raises to $1.70, Hero calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($4.57) 9 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $2.16, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.57.

      Hello QubaBuba,

      Basically it's a pretty marginal spot. It depends a lot on the opponent. When we really do face rather a passive opponent then I'd basically even consider folding it right on flop. It doesn't really make sense to Call the flop and give up on turn.

      But if he really is rather aggressive then might even Call the flop and ship turn. But since you didn't say anything about him and he is rather unknown I might even at some spots prefer folding it on such a dry flop rather then Call flop and fold turn.

      Best regards.
