      Hi staktas!

      On such a drawy flop, I think you made the safest move, which ultimately is the most profitable. As money saved is usually worth more than money won!

      Here's why:

      With a 55 VPIP the BU has a range of: 33+, A2s+, K2s+, Q2s+, J3s+, T5s+, 95s+, 85s+, 75s+, 65s, A2o+, K4o+, Q6o+, J7o+, T7o+, 97o+, 87o so he could DEFINITELY have hit the flop quite nicely.

      His aggression factor is 1.5, which is relatively passive.... meaning I don't think he'd go all-in with pure air. I would put him two-pair, a set or a made straight or flush. So you would be way behind, and therefore folding was the safest move.

      If he DID go all in with nothing, follow him around the tables and make him your bitch... take all his money because he is a fool! :f_cool:

      Hello staktas,

      No way you made a bad fold here. Most likely the safest play of all! Very good fold!

      Best regards.
