      Should maybe have called here?

      I had very little info on villian at this point so didn't know how aggressive he was.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $0.84
      Hero:
      $2.06

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BU folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) A:club: , K:heart: , T:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.12, SB raises to $0.77 (All-In), Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $0.40

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, kinda hard to Call vs his stack. I mean at the best we split here anyways. :D But the question is if he had a strong hand, would he ship like that? He could even do that with something like JT/QT/KQ/KJ or even weaker Ax hands. So both plays are fine, even if you Call it here. Although of course just avoiding the variance is fine as well.

      Best Regards.
