      On Game, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      UTG: $74.46 (148.9 bb)
      MP: $85.65 (171.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $72.30 (144.6 bb)
      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $50.25 (100.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, BTN calls $4.50, 3 folds

      Flop: ($11.25) 9 2 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $7, Hero folds

      Results:
      $11.25 pot ($0.56 rake)
      Final Board: 9 2 8
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$4.50 net)
      BTN mucked and won $10.69 ($6.19 net)


      I thought that villain is very likely to have a mid-high pair type hand against which I don't think I have profitable play on the flop.

      Yeah, giving up should be the correct play. Any stats/reads on MP ? If he's a fish, I could make some play here because BU will call with crap a lot.

      I'm pretty sure he was some kind of fish because I don't 3 bet against tight reg in this spot. I'll keep your suggestion in mind.
