      Preflop I know what you are you going to say but I loved the UTG player because I made a lot of money from him that way so played it once a again. UTG=40/3, MP3=18/0; CO=44/25. Did I make the right fold on the river. I mean it was really a crying fold but I want you to judge that. TY

      I would probably just call there, it's under a 1/2 pot bet, which means we need to hold the winning hand under 25% of the time and judging by CO being 44/25 (Btw, do you have any meaningful postflop stats on him?) then I think it's a good possibility he could have lower Aces or random pocket pairs :)

      I would actually just ship it in here with so little left behind against this type of player. Sure, he's gonna show up with a flush here sometimes but you made decent sized valuebets against that and he can still have 88-JJ, A3. A5, A6, A8, A9 or AT for a split.
