      BB: $2.30 (115 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.10 (105 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K J
      Hero raises to $0.06, BB raises to $0.18, Hero folds

      Results: $0.12 pot
      BB mucked and won $0.12 ($0.06 net)

      Opponent's stats:
      VP/PFR/AF/3bet/Cbetflop3Bpot/WTSD/hands
      64/60/3.5/35.0/100(1)/20/50

      This fold seems a bit weak, perhaps, against such a 3bet range, don't you think? On the flop I can easily fold on most boards if I don't hit.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Try out to put the opponent on a 35% range, although we don't have enough of hands. And then you will see what kind of hands he could be doing that. What kind of equity we get against that kind of range?

      Isn't it HU? -> should answer your question about if it's weak or not. :)

      Best Regards.

      The sample size is really too small to correctly say that it's 35%, but ignoring that we get almost 50% equity. Theoretically, given the odds we should call, but it is also important to know if we are able to play postflop profitably. It doesn't matter if we are ahead or not unless we have a clear plan for postflop, which I don't because the sample size is so small and we can't tell how often our opponent Cbets, gives up aso. So I think this is a very close decision until we get more information on how he plays postflop. Then again we are being heavily exploited as we fold so often to his 3bets. HU is difficult...

      HU isn't about stats, HU is about reads/notes/table dynamic. ;) I sometimes play even without stats the HU since there you don't need them that much. :)
