      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2,06
      CO:
      $1,63
      BU:
      $1,96

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , K:spade:
      4 folds, CO raises to $0,08, BU calls $0,08, Hero raises to $0,32, BB folds, CO calls $0,24, BU folds.

      Flop: ($0,74) J:heart: , 8:spade: , 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,35, CO raises to $1,31 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $2,40

      I start thinking the AK is the worst hand of Poker (at least with 72o you don't have problem, fold pre-flop and everything fine)

      Hello jeszkar,

      Well, I wouldn't even CB here. Since this kind of close still hits his calling range and we can't even be sure what kind of pairs/PPs he is folding anyways. So I am Check/Folding it.

      Best Regards.

      Why not Cbet? The board isn't draw heavy, I have only one opp. also I can represent a hand.

      I don't know. I have only 8 hand from him. But the only thing he can hit is the Jack. But maybe he also can have AQ, KQ or similar.

      Well, you don't need hands for that but rather you must have expectations to make the CB profitable. :)

      I still not understand. It's look a perfectly good flop to fold one-high card, not flush draw, not straight draw.

      Anyway, what if I hold a big pocker pair (AA or KK) then I should call his all-in?

      Without knowing the opponent we are calling any made hand yes. :)
