      BTN: $4.27 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 17
      SB: $5.12 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 16
      Hero (BB): $5.02 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 5, AF: 2,3, Hands: 24431
      UTG: $1.95 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 17, 3B: 17, AF: 0,0, Hands: 18
      CO: $2.39 - VPIP: 40, PFR: 27, 3B: 17, AF: 0,0, Hands: 15

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :club: 6 :club:
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.05, 1 fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) A :diamond: 8 :spade: 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BTN calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.28) T :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BTN raises to $1.30, Hero folds

      I don't think anyone would bluff this huge amount, if he could accomplush the same thing with a ~0.8-0.9$ raise. If I call, the pot becomes 2.88$, and he has 2.84$ behind--> river push.

      I'm definitely folding AX here but with 2pairs, you may beat some of his value range (T8). Not thrilled about it though, since the obvious 97 draw gets there.

      I think I wouldn't mind folding A6. Not sure about A8 and with AT it gets close. Never folding a set obviously.

      Hi,

      I think you mostly see there 97 ( no reason really him to raise that big with T8 or 86 or even A8), so I would fold everything besides 97- if I should somehow should have there 88/66 then I would likely get there all-in.
      I would also prefer raising pre-flop

      best regards,

      Why should we raise preflop? For fold equity preflop/flop?

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Cause your hand can easily be even ahead vs his limping range so raise for value + also take the initiative on you and might take down pot right here.

      As played
      Postflop: With rather having bottom 2 pair I'd also Bet/Fold the turn as well.

      Best Regards.
