      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, K.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.04, Hero raises to $0.12, SB raises to $0.21, Hero calls $0.08.
      QUESTION: BU had 86/43 VPIP/PFR (even though over 7 hand "samle", but he seemed restless), so I decided to deviate from the starting hands chart and reraise. Should I have folded my hands after him 3 betting? I have 1:4 pot odds.

      Flop: ($0.4) A, 5, 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.
      QUESTION: Monochrome flop, min. block bet by BU. Had no idea how to react, so folded. What does this block bet mean on a monochrome board?

      Final Pot: $0.4.

      I would flat call pre for pot control with a mediocre hand. You're not going to make a maniac fold with a 3 bet pre.

      On the flop you have 21:1 odds to call, there is no way you can fold to a min bet on that huge pot.

      Hello dember,

      Preflop: Why would you 3bet in first place vs such a maniac? Just Call and play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Vs the min-bet I'd still Call and reevaluate the turn. We can easily treat it as Check even.

      Best Regards.
