      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $25.00
      BU:
      $25.00
      SB:
      $24.81
      BB:
      $25.13
      MP3 (Hero):
      $32.24


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, A.
      Hero raises to $0.75, CO raises to $2.50, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.1.

      CO stats (469 hands)
      12/8/18/3.0/75
      2.7/75/71/23

      Did I make another weak fold? Or was it justified? This guy was playing as tight as a duck's ass.

      My options:

      1) 4-bet/fold: Makes no sense at all since his 3-bet bluffing range is close to 0, so I'm basically sure that if I 4-bet he will shove it in.
      2) 4-bet/call: I don't think he's playing anything else then AA or KK this way, so I'm screwed
      3) call 3-bet, play postflop: being OOP and being up against AA KK AK QQ there's not much positive EV in this play imo.
      4) fold: best option here since I nearly invested money in the pot. I insta-folded actually.

      Hi,

      6-handed it is not so clear imo. I think b/c is most reasonable option to then continue if you hit your tptk. He may still 3-bet with random Ax hands to balance out 3-betting KK/AA and likely he would not get all-in with worse hands, that you should 4-bet/call there

      best regards,
