      Hero (BTN): $5.07
      SB: $3.69 (32/16 over 19 hands)
      BB: $5.00 (21/17 over 79 hands)
      UTG: $5.12
      MP: $4.91
      CO: $8.35

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with A :club: 7 :club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 6 :diamond: T :spade: 9 :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.45) 8 :spade: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.20, BB raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, SB raises to $1.40, BB calls $0.80, Hero raises to $4.92

      So this hand pretty much speaks for itself. If I can ever fold a straight at NL5, I think it would be this hand. Should I fold here after the SB raises to $1.40? I assume calling the 60c (Or even raising it) is a good idea.

      Hello Salivanth,

      Why wouldn't you fold a straight here? You are most likely just chopping with 7x and easily could be against a better straight. You haven't invested much into the pot, just leave it alone. :P Especially vs such a trap lead/3bet.

      Best Regards.
