      Button ($15.01)
      SB ($15.34)
      Hero (BB) ($10.98)
      UTG ($10.45)
      MP ($10.63)
      CO ($10.53)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 10, 10
      UTG bets $0.30, MP calls $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) A, K, 3 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, MP checks

      Turn: ($0.95) 10 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, 1 fold, MP raises to $2.40, Hero folds

      Total pot: $2.35 | Rake: $0.11

      Was the fold the right decision? Against a straight I have around 22%, so the answer should be yes, am I right with this? Would you give him a wider handrange than QJ in this spot? To be honest me NOT.

      Hi Jazzy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Do we know anything about our opponent? Any information would be of help here because he is representing a VERY narrow value range.

      If you give him QJ he can also have KT (2p but fewer combos) and possibly some other semibluffs.

      If he is a passive player then folding may be ok.

      he was unknown!
      I had a hab feeling in this situation and as the decision was b/f or b/broke in my opinion I chose fold. A call was to weak in this spot I think. Either I push or fold, would you agree ?

      Calling is not ideal I agree. But maybe a smaller raise would be better than a push seeing how much money we have behind (almost like a min raise to induce).

      Calling is fine versus aggro players that love to bluff if shown weakness so we call turn and river.
