      I guess this is an easy fold, just wanted to make sure:

      iPoker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (7 handed) - iPoker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($3.91)
      SB ($13.58)
      BB ($3.80)
      UTG ($5)
      MP1 ($9.90)
      MP2 ($1.29)
      Hero (CO) ($1.85)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:spade: , A:diamond:
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, Hero raises $0.50, 1 fold, SB calls $0.45, BB calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.60) K:diamond: , J:club: , 8:spade: (3 players)
      SB bets $1, 1 fold, Hero folds

      Total pot: $1.60 | Rake: $0.08

      Results in white below:
      SB didn't show
      Outcome: SB won $2.52

      I'd play it the same. Sometimes granted the villain won't have the king and you could have the best hand, but why would you want to risk your money? :)

      because you invested some money in play and if you fold every time you lost lot of money against bluffs ? ;) and even bluffs you can beat with 3 aces and 2 jacks

      But calling a bluff here would take that you have some info on the villain. If not you would never know if he is bluffing.

      5BB are invested. I think you need a better hand than middle pair to invest another 10BB.

      To everyone:
      I'm just starting to comment hands. If my comments are good I'd love to know. If they are not so good I would really like to know that too. Thanks.

      Cheers,

      1.60 in pot, you have middle pair, top kicker. You have 1.35 left so villian calls your (.35) all-in everytime. Pot odds = 2.95 / 1.35 or 2.1:1
      2 cards to go and you have 5 outs or 4:1 hand odds

      Also, if you were re-raised pre-flop you are again in a margin (2.7:1 ratio), IMO your hand looks even better post-flop, I admit, I would have been all-in after the flop.

      The BB calls with any 2 (non-rag) cards as he calls .40 into 1.2 pot (3:1) odds, but gets all your money if he hits (implied odds) SB has a bigger chip stack and knows the BB has to fold the flop with the SS yet to act. IF the SB sees you as a tight player, then thats a steal. Otherwise, he has a K, or is donk betting. All speculation tho :)

      Hi rowzee,

      I would just fold to this donk make a note that he donks into you on a k high board when this happens more often you have to raise at a certain point.
