      Bit of a marginal spot on the flop, getting pretty good odds to call and see if I can hit my over-cards. Folded as I'm not calling further streets without hitting, and one pair may not be enough to win anyway in multi-way.

      Correct play given the price?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:
      $1.43
      Hero:
      $2.72
      MP2:
      $7.33
      CO:
      $2

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Turn: ($0.39) J:spade: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP2 checks, CO checks.

      River: ($0.39) 7:heart: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP2 checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $0.39

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a pair of tens (Ts Tc)
      MP2 shows (6h 6s)
      CO shows (9h 8h)

      UTG2 wins with a pair of tens (Ts Tc)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      LoL, for the given odds I guess I'd still Call the flop. :D We can still easily fold on turn even if we do hit our pair if we wont get good odds and they turn aggressive. But of course folding is also an option which is just safer.

      But the problem usually lies preflop while our AJo ain't the strongest hand into multiway pot. :(

      Best regards.
