      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $8.48
      UTG+1: $49.92
      CO: $40.64
      Button: $43.91
      Hero: $26.32
      BB: $6.89

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is SB with K:spade: K:heart:
      3 folds, [color:#cc0000]Button raises to $1[/color], [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $3.6[/color], BB folds, Button calls.

      Flop: J:heart: T:diamond: 4:club: ($7.45, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $5[/color], [color:#cc0000]Button raises to $22.45[/color], [color:#cc0000]Hero raises all-in $22.72[/color], Button calls.

      Is this a easy time to fold an overpair? i though that the button was pretty fishy and could do this with Jx. I still find it hard to know when to lay down the big overpairs...

      I guess i would do the same on microlimits. If he has a draw you are getting the money in for sure. If he has AJ you beat him if he doesn't hit his 5 outs which is less than a straighdraw. And if he's got 2pair like JT here you still have enough outs to make a higher two pair or trips (2+3=5 outs on turn+river).
      Flushdraw is impossible.

      Just my thinking.

      I´d also call. he could shove with draw, any pair, QQ.
