      BTN: $4.62 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 2.0, Hands: 419
      SB: $1.72 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1.6, Hands: 91
      BB: $2.42 - VPIP: 54, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 13
      UTG: $6.61 - VPIP: 47, PFR: 25, 3B: 9, AF: 2.2, Hands: 314
      MP: $1.97 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 2, 3B: 3, AF: 2.2, Hands: 84
      Hero (CO): $4.84 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 20, 3B: 8, AF: 4.3, Hands: 14030

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is CO with J :heart: A :spade:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 3 folds, MP calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.23) J :club: T :club: 7 :spade: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.18, MP calls $0.18

      Turn: ($0.59) T :diamond: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.40, MP raises to $0.80, Hero folds

      On one hand, he might have many Tx and 89 type of hands in his limp/call range. On the other, I can't just fold TPTK to minraises, because people will just exploit me.

      I also can't just call and re-evaluate, because the pot is so big and the board is wet. The only weaker that will call our shove is KJ, so I tend to fold.

      How is my fold and thoughts behind it?

      Cheers.

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I like our line here because we get value from draws (KQ, fds) and Jx. Possibly even 88 and 99 and against a guy like him I don't mind bet/folding without any additional info.
