      Hero (CO): $21.18 (105.9 bb)
      BTN: $9.67 (48.3 bb)
      SB: $14.76 (73.8 bb)
      BB: $15.19 (75.9 bb)
      UTG: $20 (100 bb)
      MP: $9.93 (49.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J K
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, BTN folds, SB calls $0.70, BB calls $0.60, MP calls $0.60

      Flop: ($3.20) 4 6 K (4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.20, MP raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, SB folds, BB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($5) 7 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $2.40, 2 folds

      Results: $5 pot ($0.25 rake)
      Final Board: 4 6 K 7
      Hero mucked J K and lost (-$1.40 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.40 net)
      MP mucked and won $4.75 ($3.35 net)

      I folded in this spot, because I had a hard time putting him on a hand that I could beat, but in hindsight he might just to something crazy with second pair or a worst K. However I still think that he doesn't do that often enough.

      Both opponents looked like fishes.

      BB: 71/38 after 21 hands
      MP: 55/10 after 21 hands

      Hey, I would have reraised on the flop to 2.8 and folded to any further action. If MP just calls you can bet the turn for value and check back river. I don't think you can get more than 2 streets of value.

      Small raise doesn´t really mean anything. He can have there 57, bluff or weaker Kx hand. His range is so wide that you can´t really fold tp against midstack player. So call him down if he continue betting half potsize bets.

      Best regards,
