      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players

      Hero (UTG): $5.50
      UTG+1: $8.55
      UTG+2: $2.68
      MP: $4.14
      MP+1: $5.14 VP 13 / PR 10 (263 hands sample)
      CO: $5.07
      BTN: $5.00
      SB: $5.00
      BB: $2.00

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has J:club: J:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.20, fold, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.20, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.47, 2 players) 7:heart: 9:heart: 6:spade:
      Hero bets $0.45, MP+1 raises to $1.10, fold

      MP+1 wins $1.31

      Was this too weak? I figured in a board like this either I was beat by any set or an improbable T8 and should fold OR should assume he was semi-bluffing raising and push all-in. Since not many players raise as a bluff, I folded.

      just fold here vs tight opponent because we are always check/folding turn if it isn't a jack

      You didn't give us any info on his post-flop aggressions there, so we can't say anything about his type of tightness..

      Is he capable of doing that with overcards? Usually if I play against a player who just cbet/fold on non-broadway board I'd raise with any 2 overcards+draws+even btm. pair.

      So, if he does moves like that you can call flop and reevaluate turn.

      Hello boozaf,

      Pretty standard, you are most likely beaten here, therefore also the Bet/Fold line.

      Best Regards.
