      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $12.95
      CO:
      $10.10
      BU:
      $10.80
      SB (Hero):
      $10.11
      BB:
      $10.26


      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J.
      MP3 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) 5, 3, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.7.

      Stats: 37/7 in 28 hands

      My plan on the flop was bet/fold. But isn't that took weak? He can even raise with overcards easily I think.

      Should I rather c/r? A c/r can take a bet out off him if he has overcards, but it also makes the pot bigger while I'm oop unsure what I'm up against.

      definitely not bet folding, if villain ever raises us with 66-TT it is a disaster for us.

      id just c/r and probably get it in

      another story is that you can 3bet preflop if villain doesnt fold to 3bets a lot, and from those hands, he does look stationy.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Bet/Folding is way too weak. That's why I would rather prefer take the passive line. Just Check/Call it. Against something like overcards+draw we are pretty much flipping anyways, could even be a strong draw like GS+FD+overcards. Against that kind of hand you ain't doing that great. :(

      With Check/Calling you give him the possibility even to CBet with his whole range if he is a CBet happy guy and gain some value from missed hands.

      Best regards.

      Ok, but what if a Q or K turn comes and he 2nd barrels? Against an A turn I c/f.

      Most likely I'd go for Check/Fold then since the Q and K improves his 2nd barreling range a lot. Also doubt that he will have a lot worse hands which we beat vs his PFR.
