      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $13.65
      Hero:
      $5.00

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:club: , 6:heart:
      7 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.00) K:heart: , 7:heart: , A:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.20, SB raises to $2.40, Hero raises to $4.00 (All-In), SB calls $1.60.

      Turn: ($10.00) J:club:
      River: ($10.00) 2:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $10.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of sixes (6c 6h)
      SB shows a pair of aces (Qs As)

      SB wins with a pair of aces (Qs As)

      its weak, my 6 will get easily dominated by higher flushes, and with two over cards, I knew that he probably had an Ace. Should I fold after the reraise?

      Preflop and c-bet is fine, but you have easy muck to a reraise on flop. Every A and K has you dominated and you also cannot count on your FD since it's only 6 high.

      If you're correct in assuming that all top-pair or better hands play this way then I imagine that your call is just about +EV since you will just about suckout often enough to make up for the times that you are drawing near dead.

      call = shove in the above

      Of course.

      Sorry, I meant shove not call. It's just that to examine the viability of a shove with no FE then I always calculate the necessary equity by imagining villain to be shoving (and us calling).

      eg. we "call" $2.8 to win $7.20 in the above hand when we are faced with the pot-committing min-reraise.

      And you get the odds for a six high flush if he has TP (2.6:1)
      I would bet 2/3 pot instead of 6/10~ and shove when getting reraised here
