      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:diamond: , K:club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB folds, BB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.32) A:club: , T:diamond: , 8:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.23, BB calls $0.23.

      Turn: ($0.78) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.4, BB raises to $1.62 (All-In), Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.58

      (?) Just checking if everything is normal here.. Folding to a re-raise (on the turn) when holding just a top pair is standard, I guess? I shouldn't be willing to go for stacks when only having top pair, correct?

      Thanks

      Hi,

      In this situation yes because the board is that coordinated that it also offers straights & multiple twopairs. Be careful on other boards such as J 4 5 , Turn: 9 while you have AJ/KJ
