      BU is 22/17 over 18 hands, no other information.

      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $8 (40 bb)
      Hero (MP): $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $59.21 (296.1 bb)
      BTN: $21.32 (106.6 bb)
      SB: $20.20 (101 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BTN calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.10) T 2 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.46, CO folds, BTN raises to $4.40, Hero???

      simple bet/fold to this? if i call the flop i'm OOP and face a turn barrel so often, and there are a ton of turns i hate so i just wanna check that folding is best here...

      Hey DrDunne,

      I think bet-folding is a legitimate option OOP vs an unknown.

      The fact that the pot is 3way makes it statistically more likely someone hits the flop. It also means you represent more strength with a cbet meaning BTN theoretically raises a stronger range.

      And finally, your flop price is not your true price. If you were closing the action you'd snap call - the problem is that you may have to face a ton of further action OOP on turn + river.
