      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3 (Hero):
      $1.97


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.18) T, Q, A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.32, SB calls $0.23.

      Turn: ($0.82) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.39, Hero???

      I decided to raise since I have a pretty good hand on the flop. I want to extract value from AT, AJ, AK. AA and QQ are very unlikely now. I'm only afraid of KJ, TT.

      On the turn though, this K is a terrible card. I only beat Ax. Do I call and hope a free showdown? Do I fold?
