      Dealt to Hero A:heart: K:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.30

      BB checks, Hero bets $4, BB raises to $8.41 (AI), Hero folds

      BB wins $12.40

      Stats: 60/60 in 5 hands

      Can I even fold here? I'm commited to the pot, and he could have a worse straight (89 and K9). I don't believe he has a set because he'd probably raise QQ, JJ and TT pf.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, actually I wouldn't even bet the river that much. Since as you see it's way too hard for him to Call with a hand like 2pairs here. I would consider doing it ~$3 at maximum and then I would also have an easily fold.

      But as played it still goes the same, I rarely doubt that he would Check/Shove here with a straight while better straights and even flushes are possible. Most likely did that with a flush, good fold!

      Best regards.

      I bet because he looked like a calling station, I was thinking he'd call with any 2 pairs and maybe even Qx.

      Good to know it was a good fold, this fold tilted me because I thought I made a really bad play :s_mad:

      Well, from bad plays we learn. :) At least it wasn't at NL1k or anything similar. :D
