      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hand afspelen

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $6.19
      BB (Hero):
      $5.45
      MP3:
      $6.13
      CO:
      $9.58
      BU:
      $5.55


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2, 2.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.15, 3 folds, 2 folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.07.


      Do I fold this preflop? I feel like it's hard to get paid off out of position.

      Hi Kaos,

      Preflop: It really depends on the opponent. Usually you are at least break even set mining vs a 3-4x raise. In this case we are in better shape because we already have 1 BB in the pot and only have to add two more.

      So for example, even if you fold everytime you don't hit a set you lose 2 x 7 = 14 BB. So when you hit the set you only need to make that much to break even which could be just a cbet (or two).
