      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A:heart: , Q:club:
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0,80, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0,80, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,80, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($2,70) 4:spade: , 2:club: , 9:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1,00, MP3 folds, Hero ?


      Call, Push or Fold?

      If I push I have to invest 3,2 in order to win 3,70 thus:
      3,70:3,2
      1.156:1
      Thus I need 46% equity If I am right?

      If I call , my pot odds are 3,7:1 so pretty not profitable due negative Implied odds with 5 outs to be honest. I suspect MP1 will either check or bet 1/2 potsized on the Turn. Thus the pot will be then (2,50{=suspected bet on the turn} + 2,7) : 1 = 5,2:1

      Folding is quite easy to explain, you only got 5 outs atm.

      Can a judge look thoroughly at my calculations here? AQo playing from UTG is an expansion so please do not comment on that as its futile. Thanks.

      I would fold because of the VP$IP of MP1. It's 15... but it's only my opinion :P lets wait for judge to answer the post :)

      Your oponent seems reasonable, if he donks half a pot, he probably has something. I'd simply fold.

      Pushing is wrong here, he most likely has you beat. With such a small pfr he's likely to call a raise with even overpair like TT-JJ.

      I don't like a call simply because you hardly ever can rely on implieds with short stack. With a decent big stack you may try something here, but not now, I guess.

      Maybe it's an ugly spot, so be it, bad luck.
