      2 folds, CO calls, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $0.5[/color], 2 folds, [color:#cc0000]CO raises all-in $6.83[/color], Hero calls.

      Flop: 4:club: Q:club: 5:heart: ($13.81, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $13.81)

      Turn: 6:diamond: ($13.81, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $13.81)

      [color:#ffffff]CO Shows 7d 7h[/color]
      [color:#ffffff]Hero Shows Kd Ah[/color]

      Thinking about it after the hand, I think I should have folded since villain was unknown to me... and the most common limp/push hand is pocket pairs so I'm mostly in a coinflip a little behind. Is there any value in calling?

      Hey gggeorgio,

      against unknown I would fold here. You haven't invested a lot and have to call for 63BB more. As you said: You often have a coinflip. You will find better spots to get your money in. If you however know that he is pushing Ax hands as well, calling is fine.

      Best regards,
