      Flop: ($0.78) 4 A 7 (2 players)

      Results: $6.48 pot ($0.43 rake)
      Final Board: 4 A 7 T 8
      MP mucked and won $6.05 ($2.84 net)
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$3.21 net)

      Opponent's stats over a 72 hand sample size: 39/28/0.0 (VP/PFR/3bet)

      Up until river I guess it's standart. The question is - am I pot committed? I decided to fold, because he seemed to think a bit before checking on the river, as if considering a bet.

      if my math is correct, you need to win this one out of 3,5 times to make a profitable call, but you don't beat that many made hands, and check/raise a river is rarely a bluff..
      he's even capable to open/call 65s preflop i guess, so it's really stinky situation, i hate than this happens when you hit your AK, but most likely you made a good fold
      i'm interested in what veriz will say about this hand

      Hello Avatars91,

      Well, I wouldn't really talk here much about the good fold. I'd rather ask you why do you bet so small? :P Against those opponents who are that loose you can easily even consider making a bigger bet on the flop & turn. Otherwise on the river yeah, unfortunately Bet/Fold, I really doubt that he is Check/Raising with worse hands.

      Best Regards.

      How much bigger are we talking about?

      I just thought that it's standard because of the dry flop and turn.

      Most likely if he has a hand he is going to pay anyways and also he seems to be kinda loose. I'd bet ~$0,50 and ~$1 on the turn. :)
