      Fold on the flop. Even if he is doing it with air you can call here.
      No information and not many outs to safe you if he is ahead

      With all the dead-money and the fishy looking MP2 you could even open-shove here as your line looks bluffy and you could well be called by worse hands.

      As played you are pot-committed on any flop (another reason to open-shove) versus the even-shorter-stack-probable-fish. Instacall flop. Folding on this flop versus this player is a huge mistake.

      Tip: Know when you are pot-committed.

      I am confused. Fold flop? I count 8 outs for 2:1 hand odds. I see a call would be 2.56:1 pot odds. Even if I discounted the BD wheel draw I still have 2.5:1 for break even. I am calling/pushing this flop. Villian often has air here, like Ace high. Sample size is low, but some players are obvious chum. (is my math correct?)

      I agree with Nunki, open push the flop and take it down. I can't see anyflop that does not pot-commit you, and if you get 2 callers you lose equity. Take the dead-money and add it to your roll.

      I did not see that he has only $4.8 left
      But still you need 29% BE (with rake)
      vs. TPGK you have only 27.8%
      vs. sets, two pairs you are dead

      And I don't thing that play is a bluff when he has 1/2 pot size bet

      But still the call is not so bad, when he have only $4,8

      You are pot committed only when your call/push will make you profit in the long run. If you have only 1/9 of the pot but don't have 10% like never you are not pot committed :tongue:

      I'm calling here if I played, not because I have the equity, just because for so little bet I will not even thing for his range on this spot :rolleyes:

      I call and make a note on him.

      He is loose and a shortstack and already made the mistake of calling you pre instead of pushing or folding.

      call flop you could consider a preflop push.
