      BTN: $14.76 (147.6 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.55 (105.5 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $4.31 (43.1 bb)
      MP: $10.87 (108.7 bb)
      CO: $9.95 (99.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) J 8 A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $0.80, Hero folds

      $1.40 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: J 8 A
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$0.70 net)
      BB mucked and won $1.34 ($0.64 net)

      Seat 3: Player3 ( $10.00 USD ) - VPIP: 50, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 2

      Usually these min-raises are monsters. I also don't know if Villain is a reg who can use this to exploit vs fellow regs.

      So I chose to fold as I might be already drawing very thin and OOP. There are a lot of draws though, so is 3-bet/fold plausible? But I also do not want to 3-bet for value and then fold which seems retarded. And 3-betting for info also doesn't sound right. ?(

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: If this was done on the turn after he called our flop I'd agree with you. But a lot of fish also raise pairs/draws on the flop so folding TPTK is a bit weak however it's not terrible (and it's definitely the safest play).

      If we were to continue I'd probably 3-bet here and get it in given how many bad turns there are.
