      1st hand on table, so zero info on villains.

      Nitty fold? I just didn't feel right about committing the stack on my first hand, especially with UTG+2 still to act.

      Once SB left the table after a few orbits, his stats were 31/0/AF=0.3 in 42 hands. I saw no other donks from him.

      I'm 99% sure it's a disciplined fold with this info after the event :D , but considering it's the first hand at the table, what would you do?

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Most likely against very passive opponent I do like the idea of folding while even having UTG behind us who can easily even trapping. Or of course it's the possibility that even SB traps. Safest play overall. :)

      Problem is if we Call the turn then we will be pretty much committed on river as well.

      Best regards.

      That's exactly what I was thinking - making folds like this has improved my winrate in a big way. Learning to let go of AA/KK/QQ was one of my biggest issues before, but since coming back to poker last week I think I've solved it... playing more tables... :D

      That's very good to hear. For a lot it's the leak that they are overplaying overpairs on very dry boards. :) Keep going the good work!
