      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (9 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($0.75)
      Hero (BB) ($2.12)
      Button ($2.02)
      SB ($2.22)
      MP1 ($2.44)
      MP2 ($3.70)
      MP3 ($0.54)
      CO ($1)
      UTG+1 ($4.63)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, J
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, 1 fold, MP2 bets $0.08, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.06, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.19) 10, 8, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.09, Hero folds

      Total pot: $0.19

      Couldn't decide whether to call or raise? MP2 was 45/25 after 171 hands- What put me off was the limper was quite tight.

      Flop he cbet 80% of the time- should i have called with backdoor flush draw and overcards?

      If it was me I think I would fold preflop, but might be me needing more postflop action in order tp know what to do postflop with such hand :)

      Every option is ok here.

      Fold: easiest way, you just lose bb
      Call: you need an idea how to play tjos hand postflop, OOP and no initiative won't help here
      3bet: you can end hand pre + you have potential to play it profitable postflop

      Hello DrRaab,

      As long he shows weakness with his sizing there you could easily Check/Raise while also having some backdoors. But of course folding isn't going to be wrong, just the safest option.

      Best Regards.
