      MP2: $20.66
      CO: $29.65
      Hero (BTN): $10.00

      BB: $13.17

      UTG+1: $10.00
      MP1: $10.38

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :heart: T :club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) T :diamond: 2 :spade: K :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB calls $0.55, BB folds

      Turn: ($2.00) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.70, Hero folds


      BB is pretty much unknown with 100/20 over 5 hands and SB played 22/0 over 51 handsand rather passive postflop.

      I cbet the flop for value and protection of my 2nd pair, because they seem fishy enough to call with strange gutshots or 2nd or 3rd pair.

      When SB call flop and bets out on the turn I just thought I'm always way behind because it seemed like a small bet for value with at least a pair of kings.

      Now that I evaluate the hand I see that I only need 21% equity to make a profitable call here.

      if I use a 25% calling range preflop and remove all hands that I thought he would have folded on the flop, but could bet out like this on turn I get a range of something like this 99+,22,AKs,ATs,K6s+,QJs,T9s,AKo,ATo,K9o+,QJo even with some semibluffs like oesd in his range I only have 25.6% against that range here.

      To weak to fold here? should I call and reevaluate on the river? If I call how big of a bet can I call on a blank card or easy fold?

      Hello ollehult,

      Not much you can do here. I wouldn't Call either on turn. Rather let it go than continue here. If they didn't want to give it up on flop then our further plan is to give up ourselves. He might even easily trap you with a strong hand sometimes. If we hit trips or even 2pairs we will basically never know where we stand with it.

      Best regards.
