      at first I thought it was an obvious fold to the reraise in a multiway pot but was MP2 just viewed as weak for his bet sizing and I was thought of as the same for just calling such a weak bet. Could this have been a move by the SB?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 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 K:spade: , Q:club:
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.50) K:club: , 6:spade: , 4:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, SB raises to $0.60, 2 folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.25

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, usually there are of course 2 ways to play the hand. You could raise it right away vs such a weak bet and protect your hand. But what's your plan if you face a 3bet then?

      Or either way you play it this way and most likely fold to the SB line, even though it's a small raise. But we don't want to commit ourselves in this case. It will be hard for us to Call the turn anyways while he most likely will continue betting.

      Best Regards.
