      Looking back I am wondering why he only bet half pot size of the flop? If he has AA or AK then surely he would protect his hand more. Should I have called here?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:diamond: , J:club:
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.08, SB folds, BB raises to $0.26, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.61) K:spade: , 9:spade: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.34, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.61

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, what kind of opponent the BB is? I mean is he even capable of squeezing light? 3betting a lot? Against those kind of opponents I'd rather just 4bet and get it in than Call as you did vs his stack which wasn't even full. Than talk about the play postflop where obviously it could be the case that he was scared of the flop and wanted to make it cheap. :)

      Best regards.
