      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, Q.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.32) Q, 8, 7 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.15, BB calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.62) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.30, BB raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.45.

      River: ($2.12) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.21, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.12.

      Is this a good fold? I have 13/6 over 16 hands on him, well it's zoom :/

      I really don't like that check/call to start with (usually means extreme strength or extreme weak hand, at least in my experience so far) and I hate that check/min-raise on turn (J).. I put him on set, it could be JJ and that will make sense why he decided to go for a check/min-raise when J fell on the turn, or even 88, 77, he slow-played it, but then decided "hey, I need to step in, or else I'll get minimal value out of it"..
      Something like that?

      Hello eXtremeACE,

      Bet the flop bigger, Bet the turn bigger and Bet/Fold the turn. There is no point to Call vs such a small raise, quite obvious that you will face another bet on the river.

      Best Regards.
