      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG+2: $10.98
      MP: $9.49
      MP+1: $8.88
      Hero (CO): $11.29
      BTN: $3.85
      SB: $3.00
      BB: $8.54
      UTG: $10.00
      UTG+1: $3.70

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:diamond: K:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, MP raises to $0.30, MP+1 calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.05, 3 players) K:diamond: A:diamond: 8:spade:
      MP bets $0.50, fold, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.05, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      MP bets $0.80, Hero ??

      MP is 21/10 after a decent sample
      fold to 3bet 22%; fold to cbet flop 75% (3/4)
      CO is a fish

      I'm not sure if I made the right decision pre flop by just flatting KJo here. I don't like folding since we will play against the fish but at the same time I don't feel comfortable 3betting KJo here. What do you think, is calling okay here?

      On the turn he will have a lot TPTK should we go for a raise here?

      Hi Theodolus,

      Preflop: Why are we calling this hand preflop? It should be a 3-bet or fold. 3-bet and isolate the fish if you want to play with him

      Postflop: As played I'd just fold the flop.

      Hi Theodolus,

      I think you meant that MP+1 is a fish and not CO (you) :f_biggrin:

      I don't like your call in this spot because:
      #1 KJo plays bad in multiway pots - your pairs will often be weak/dominated.
      #2 You can still get squeeze and then you'd have to fold.

      I wouldn't 3bet this hand ever as we don't want to bluff vs fishes (especially given that they don't fold to 3bets).

      So just muck it pre and wait for a better spot.

      As played, I don't like the flop call as villain will not bet worse than Ax and there aren't many flush combos + it's a multiway pot so he's even less likely to bluff. So just muck it.

      Same as above + I would never raise in this spot without a flush because:
      #1 Bad players like to call so you have no fold equity.
