      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A A
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.25, 4 folds, MP2 calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 9 K 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $3.50, MP2 raises to $7, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($19.25) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($19.25) 8 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $67.40 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Can I fold right away on the flop, or its okey to call in position and see what he is doing on later streets?

      Meh, limp/call and check/minraise flop is usually strong. I think calling is fine though with position and definitely a good hand.

      On the turn though, I prefer betting. Fish can check/raise Kx for 'protection/information' and 3 means a lot fewer set combos, plus you beat K9 now. Bet turn, fold to shove or raise there (double check/raise = quads or better :f_biggrin: ) and decide river when called.

      As played, I sigh fold because price is not good enough imo. Edge is basically small here, maybe no edge at all (might be -EV) and you can just win money way easier against the fish.
