      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      MP3: $2.15 (107.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $3.17 (158.5 bb)
      MP1: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $2.30 (115 bb)
      MP2: $2.56 (128 bb)
      CO: $0.85 (42.5 bb)
      SB: $0.72 (36 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J Q
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO folds, Hero calls $0.02, SB completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.08) J 9 Q (4 players)
      SB bets $0.06, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.24, SB folds, MP3 raises to $0.42, Hero calls $0.18

      Turn: ($0.98) 8 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.71 and is all-in, Hero folds

      My main question is if i should fold right away at flop, after the raise of MP3.
      MP3 stats: vpip/pfr/af= 21/13/1.5 at 28 hands.

      that you played bad, you can easily go all inn in this are really behind at KT also with a any flush on the flop you are ahead... I d ship all inn on the flop with top 2... and you can still make full house.. anyway as played good fold on the turn

      Mp3 first called and then reraised.

      What do you think his range is?

      And what equity do you have versus this range (I recommend that you use PokerEquilab).

      If we exclude all 2 pair combinations,we are crashed by this range:

      Board: Q:diamond: J:diamond: 9:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      Hero    18.18%  17.36%   0.82% { QsJc }
      MP3  81.82%  81.01%   0.82% { 99, KTs, T8s, KTo, T8o }

      If we include all 2 pair combinations (unlikely), he is slightly ahead (56-44).

      Nevertheless, his play doesn't make much sense to me. Let 's assume he has a straight at flop. Why doesn't he raise at first chance? And why did he shove when another diamond came at turn? Unless he had K :diamond: T :diamond: ...
