      Party Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      6 players
      Converter

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $22.04
      UTG+1: $28.74
      CO: $14.16
      Button: $58.43
      SB: $25.93
      Hero: $25.35

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is BB with K:spade: A:heart:
      UTG folds, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 raises to $1[/color], CO folds, [color:#cc0000]Button raises to $3[/color], SB folds, Hero calls, UTG+1 calls.

      Flop: 7:spade: Q:diamond: 6:spade: ($9.1, 3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, [color:#cc0000]Button bets $6.55[/color], Hero folds, UTG+1 folds.
      Uncalled bets: $6.55 returned to Button.

      Results:
      Final pot: $9.1

      Since I was in BB, I should have probably folded it, right? What if I have position on them?

      I don't really like calling there. You are in a sandwich and UTG could still come over the top. So i think I would fold. Maybe a little weak but I think we have to give up the hand on the flop way too often to make the preflop call profitable.

      Make it 8$. You have huge fold equity plus you can probably fold when UTG+1 shoves and BU could also lay down his AK or JJ.
      Postflop: if one of the players calls, then you can b/f if you miss, because players would expect that you c/f with AK.
