      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG+1 with A :diamond: K :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.07, Hero calls $0.07, 4 folds, SB calls $0.06, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.23) 4 :heart: J :spade: A :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG bets $0.23, Hero folds, SB folds

      I know it seems ridiculous to fold here, but here is my reasoning:

      Preflop: After thinking about it, I decide not to 3bet because his PFR is only 6%, and EP PFR is 1%, although maybe I don't have enough of a sample. I think he is probably raising TT+, AQs+ so my plan is if the board comes A or K with no T/J/Q I can see what he does and act accordingly.

      Flop: On the flop his bet just looks so strong betting so big into 2 people, and at this limit pot-bets are usually nuts, I decide to fold because I don't think he's betting so big with QQ, TT, maybe KK. Or I probably should've called and re-evaluate turn?

      Or maybe I'm just a fish... :f_mad:
