      River: ($10.16) Q:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $10.16
      My call preflop is ok? My opinion that a 4bet/fold or a 4bet/call was out of the question.
      Should i have folded on the flop? when he raises there he could represent AA or QQ ( I really didnt know what to do in that spot).

      Hello spid3rix,

      Preflop: Guess the Call is fine if you expect the opponent to do the 3bets a lot lighter and maybe even weaker Ax hands. Although I guess folding might be safer if he is rather tighter side.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, usually such a min-bet and then 3betting like that is a trap. I'd really be inclined to Raise/Fold here since I don't really see any worse hand taking such a line. I mean what do we beat?

      Best regards.

      So usually in that spot a raise will show us if it is a trap or not right?

      Nah, not only that. If the opponent would bet a lot bigger then I wouldn't even raise. But rather it's usually the case when they min-bet like that and then 3bet it's often a sign of strong hand.
