      Well, I know I have to fold if MP2 re-raises. But the unexpected happened. Would you call here?

      It's an ugly play by villain but I think its even uglier if I fold?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:spade: , T:club:
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.18, MP3 calls $0.18, Hero raises to $0.80, 4 folds, MP3 raises to $4.11 (All-In), Hero calls $1.19 (All-In), MP3 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Flop: ($4.23) Q:heart: , J:diamond: , 6:diamond:
      Turn: ($4.23) 2:heart:
      River: ($4.23) 8:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.23

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a pair of queens (As Qs)
      Hero shows (Ts Tc)

      MP3 wins with a pair of queens (As Qs)

      Hey sp00nman,

      Despite articles advising you to fold here in case you get reraised you shouldn't do so because you already invested too much money with your 3-bet in order to get away from the hand. Even against a strong range you have enough equity to go broke.

      To learn when to go broke and when to fold try to calculate your needed equity and then compare your equity against range you put villain on.

      Nice hand.

      Best regards,
