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

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $1.93
      MP3:
      $2.26
      CO:
      $2.22
      BU (Hero):
      $2.00
      SB:
      $2.73
      BB:
      $0.72
      UTG1:
      $1.95
      UTG2:
      $2.00
      MP1:
      $4.14


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, 9.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, BB raises to $0.14, Hero folds, SB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.36) 4, K, K (2 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.58, SB folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.36.

      Bad luck or bad play? SB seems to be a nit and very tight player, his call suprised me a lot because I expected either a fold or a re-raise. BB is new to the game, no stats at all.

      Hello Firefly52,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      We won't forget you. :D

      About the play Id' say that obviously it's safer to fold the hand preflop. We are just putting yourselves into difficult spots postflop while our K is often dominated by better Kx or either if we even hit our pair we will never know where we stand with it. Don't be result oriented.

      Although it's doable even if you Call the min-raise and play it postflop rather passively and you are sure in your postflop skills.

      Best regards.
