      I just called Qs from the BU due to the raise from the UTG, from which I expect him to be more tight (he has 15% PFR from the early position). The BB-rock joined the pot. Since it was checked to me on the flop, I decided to take a pot down. The BB then raised so I supose I am beaten when such a rock check/raised..

      UTG: 25/23/15/77/7,1/795 (VPIP/PFR/PFR-EP/FCB/AF/H)
      BB: 14/13/0/inf/179 (VPIP/PFR/CHR/AF/H)

      Final Pot: $1.98

      BB wins $1.90 (net +$0.59)

      UTG lost $0.16
      Hero lost $0.53

      Hello Alleen86,

      Preflop: Calling preflop is totally fine. If you don't feel secure to go broke against him and more often he might only continue with very strong hands then going for passive line is fine as well.
      Postflop: Not much you can do here, most likely BB has you hardly beat and I wouldn't consider to continue either here. Good fold!

      Best regards.
