      PokerStars - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $1.48
      BTN: $3.45
      Hero (SB): $2.46
      BB: $1.46
      UTG: $1.99
      UTG+1: $2.00
      MP: $2.63
      MP+1: $0.89
      LP: $4.02

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 2:diamond: 2:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.05, fold

      Flop: ($0.14, 2 players) K:heart: K:club: K:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.10, fold

      UTG wins $0.14

      Didn't really know what to do here, really. Calling seemed bad, because any card would be bad. Raising also seemed like a bad idea because I would isolate myself against a stronger range. So I just folded.

      Was that the right play to make?

      It depends on UTG what i'd do here if he's very tight player preflop who's range mostly has pocket pairs then i'd just fold because any of those beat you, but against any non full-house non quads hand, you have good equity and should raise for value and protection, and fold to a re-raise on the flop

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Depends of course a lot on the opponent here. But usually folding is going to be safer, will be also kinda difficult to play for us if you have less postflop skill and understand what to do on further actions.

      Best Regards.
