      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $17.62
      Hero (BTN): $10.00
      SB: $6.18
      BB: $1.69
      UTG: $11.95
      MP: $11.76

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 4:diamond: A:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.10, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.40, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.95, 2 players) 6:diamond: Q:club: A:club:
      UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.82, UTG raises to $1.54, fold

      UTG wins $2.42

      Villain is 57/7 over 100 hands.

      Pretty standard fold? Will villain ever make this play with some sort of draw? I can image he would rather just check/call or in his case, minbet/call instead.

      I felt like against this loose guy it was a bit weak, because he had done this minbetting thing quite often. This is the first time he went for a 3bet though (again a min-raise). But looking back at it, it probably was pretty marginal.

      So, easy fold?

      I like isolating preflop against a 57/7 opponent and I think you should make it at least $0.45 (potsize) here.

      I like your flop play.
      The guy looks passive so I don't really think he would play like that with a worse hand, so easy fold.

      Would you ever suggest limping with such a hand? What about 22-44?

      What if there were 2 limpers before us?

      Hi. With axs in the bu i usually isor. With 2 limpers i think i would limp behind 65s and 44. A4s is close, A7s would still be an isor for me. Also dependent on how loose blinds are. The looser they are , the less likely we can isolate a single opponent. Thus limoing behind becomes more favourablem
