      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $0.99
      CO:
      $2.19
      BU:
      $2.02
      SB:
      $0.78
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $1.21
      MP1:
      $5.49


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 5, 3, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.19, MP3 calls $0.19.

      Turn: ($0.57) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.41, MP3 raises to $0.72(All-In), Hero ???.

      A small sample on MP3: 42/8/1.6/23/106 [VPIP/PRF/AF/WTS/Hands]

      I know when he's making a move like this with his style of playing, I should be cautious. Additionally, he's Short-stack, I know what there's something in his move, but... I try to find out with nothing. Can anybody suggest a right choice in this spot?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Well, for the given stack sizes we can't fold this. He could easily even have worse, maybe just draws and weaker pairs/PPs.

      Best Regards.

      Just my opinion but I would call.

      If villain has Axc then you're going to lose but if he has lower clubs or other suited connectors (54s, 56s etc) you still have outs with the rest of the clubs. If he does have two clubs then there are 7 left so roughly 6.5:1. You have to call $0.31 to win a pot of $2.02 which is also about 6.5:1.

      This is the first time I have commented on a hand posted here so I will be interested to see what others think.

      Haha I started this before Veriz had posted but I got distracted and pipped to the post :f_biggrin:
