      Hi,

      If you haven´t seen too many bluffraises I think your fold is fine. Players would usually not c/r oop with draws and their hand range is this point 6x or better.

      Best regards,

      Hello hackbinder,

      Well, I'd ask a simple question here. Why do you Bet so small? I'd Bet the flop already ~$0,14 at least and ~$0,34 on the turn. Sometimes those opponents may easily even see that you block-betting with any kind of draws and that may induce them to raise you with even Tx. Rather make look the bets stronger.

      Overall it might be even possible to Call, since I also expect some opponents to overplay their Tx here. But while 89 also completes some hands it's kinda close and against more passive opponents your fold is totally fine while haven't invested much into the pot.

      Best Regards.
