      Couple of hands after I fold in an almost identical situation, I decide to spew away a good portion of my stack with TPTK. Think some of this is a mental thing, hard to hit a board hard and have to give it up repeatedly, start to want to 'make a stand'.

      Raised as I hoped he may be drawing, but of course I was drawing dead here.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:club: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.07, 2 folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.23) K:club: , J:heart: , 5:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.19, MP3 folds, SB raises to $0.80, Hero raises to $1.93 (All-In), SB calls $0.46 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Turn: ($2.75) T:spade:
      River: ($2.75) 8:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.75

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ac Kd)
      SB shows three-of-a-kind, fives (5d 5c)

      SB wins with three-of-a-kind, fives (5d 5c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Against his stack it's definitely pretty hard to fold. But now again would he be able to raise with just TP here? I rather doubt that he is doing that with a draw while he rather seems to be loose-passive guy. And for that reason I might sometimes even fold the hand.

      But of course as we go broke here shouldn't be that huge problem either while he doesn't have much in his stack. Against a full-stack it would be much more difficult to call-down.

      Best regards.
