      BB: $2.02 (101 bb)
      UTG: $1.51 (75.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $2.39 (119.5 bb)
      CO: $4.04 (202 bb) 13/10/2.7/3.2 (vpip/pfr/Af/3bet)
      BTN: $2.81 (140.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO calls $0.08, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) 6 9 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, CO raises to $0.64, Hero calls $0.49

      Turn: ($1.47) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.67, Hero folds

      Results:[spoiler] $1.47 pot ($0.08 rake)
      Final Board: 6 9 7 2
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$0.72 net)
      CO mucked and won $1.39 ($0.67 net)

      well allthough frustrating I think it's quite obvious that I should fold but should I have folded on his raise on the flop??thanx for the evaluation(i forgot hands 629)

      I would either get it in or fold on the flop, because he is shoving anything he is raising with after you check on the turn. It's close between shoving and folding because I think a reg would be raising his draws and some bluffs as well, not just sets for the obvious reason that most of your range missed the flop. As much as it hurts,though , I'd prefer folding because the board hit his range too well and you haven't invested much in the pot.

      Hello helliaspapas,

      Bet/Fold the flop right away, no way to continue here whilst you will very often be against a strong made hand.

      Best Regards.

      YOu have to make a decision on that flop. Whether you go broke on his raise or you fold. You can't hunt for your 2 outs there with those odds.

      On the contrary, I'd fold do to his flat call range, which includes many small pocket pairs that hit the flop well.
