      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A, K.
      Hero raises to $0.35, UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.70, 6 folds, Hero calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.55) A, J, 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks.

      Turn: ($1.55) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.16, MP1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.55

      After the initial bet I got minraised. The reason I've called instead of reraising is that if I got called and didn't hit I'd be OOP, which would just about guarantee a lost pot. My plan for flop was to reraise his bet, since I kinda expected for him to at least make a CB. Since he didn't I figured that he missed completly or maybe had a smalish pocket pair, so even though turn brought a possible Flush I figured he didn't connect, cause if he had FD, he would have bet on the flop, so I took a stab at the pot and it worked.

      villain stats: 17/5/12/1.7/1.3/67/8k (VPIP/PFR/steal/3-bet/Agg factor/Flop CB/hands)

      Is my line of thought ok or not?

      Hello bbosstjan,

      The problem is his 3bet range. It's very tiny and therefore he will mostly have a very strong range there. We may easily even be against KK+. And that's sometimes even the reason why I would consider folding while even being OOP.

      Although as played seems to be definitely fine.

      Best regards.
