      BB: $2.53 (50.6 bb)
      UTG: $1 (20 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5.17 (103.4 bb)
      CO: $4.37 (87.4 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $6.88 (137.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 6 5 K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, BTN raises to $0.60, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN raises to $2.40, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($5.27) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.57 and is all-in, BTN calls $2.40 and is all-in

      River: ($10.07) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      I think this was a case of massively overplaying top pair top kicker when he raised me to $2.40 on the flop. his min raise on the flop sucked me in thinking he was on a flush draw

      Hi Drraab,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop:This really comes down to the player.

      Since its a raise on the flop I can see even Kx in his range so I can't see us folding AK unless we have info on him.

      Why do we just call the 4-bet? we either shove or fold. Generally speaking this min raise min 4-bet is a nutty hand so i'm more willing to fold. If he would 4-bet shove I'd call.
