      MP2: $5.74 (143.5 bb)
      MP3: $2.05 (51.2 bb) 62/11 1.5Af 127 hands Note: passively played K high flush draw OPP checkd to river
      CO: $3.90 (97.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $4.11 (102.8 bb)
      SB: $5.31 (132.8 bb)
      BB: $0.72 (18 bb)
      MP1: $2.26 (56.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K :diamond: K :heart:
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.08, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.24, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.54) 9 :diamond: 7 :diamond: 8 :club: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks

      Given he limped/called I took JJ-AA out of his range as I feel he is open raising or 3betting me with any of these hands, the only hand in his range I felt I would get value from would be 10s, and even that hand has good equity. I thought any range he calls with have me crushed 99,88,77,10J,87,89 or has soild equity 10s,67,66 thus I didn't think a value bet was the proper play.

      Turn: ($0.54) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.54, Hero folds

      Give the villains propensity for passivity, a pot bet here is probably for value. The range Ive assigned him has me crushed so I folded.

      Thoughts are appreciated.

      Hello burgermeister,

      Bet the flop, we need to protect but otherwise vs the pot size Bet kind of tough to continue while too many hands beat us already, so folding is fine.

      Best Regards.
