      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $0.68 (34 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $2.08 (104 bb)
      MP: $1.20 (60 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $1.76 (88 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K A
      Hero raises to $0.06, 2 folds, BTN raises to $0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.23) J 4 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.11, Hero folds

      $0.23 pot ($0.01 rake)
      Final Board: J 4 4
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$0.10 net)
      BTN mucked and won $0.22 ($0.12 net)

      Villain is 52/7 over 30 hands, 25% 3bet over 8 hands.

      Wasn't really sure what to do here. He seemed to be very loose passive despite having 3bet twice before, so I figured calling here would be better, and then just play fit or fold on the flop.

      So not too sure about this one...

      I would rather just 4bet here for value and get it in preflop.

      As played preflop, check/folding the flop is nice. Although we could have the best hand here, I believe that folding is fine as we don't go into tough spots that can make us lose money.
