      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $10.35
      UTG2:
      $4.85

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J:club: , J:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.40, UTG2 raises to $1.20, 8 folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.95

      In SSS this would be a definite push, but BSS rules say I have to fold a raise behind unless I have AA or KK. I can't call 20 because neither has $24. So, correct fold?

      you dont need $24 in both stacks to call - you only need $16, since you only have to call another $0.80.

      And you are correct to fold here, especially since you would be out of position postflop - you are just going to get pushed out of the pot in the next betting round. Folding earned you 8 big blinds, well done.

      Opponent seems aggressive (unless he is sss, it should be shove, since he only has 48bb and might fold better hands like AK or call with worse hands like TT).
