      Just a simple hand here. I can't imagine the board hitting either of us, so I'm only behind pocket pairs, or AQ+, or some weird hand with a 5. The bet size wasn't very big, so I don't know if hes just trying to bait, or just a very bad bluff. Still, I don't want to bleed money where I can help it. Fold or call?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, J.
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, 2 folds, CO calls $0.08, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.27) 2, 2, 6 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.27) 3 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, MP1 folds.

      River: ($0.47) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.16, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.47.

      Hello KiroLiro,

      Most likely it would be safer to just fold the turn, cause I mean if you Call the turn then you practically beat most of the hands on the river as well. :) Doesn't really make sense to Call the turn and then fold on river. It's not a shame to just give up if you don't hit.

      Best Regards.
