      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      BU = ($10.81)
      SB = ($4.22)
      BB(Hero) = ($11.47)
      MP2 = ($9.45)
      MP3 = ($13.09)
      CO = ($11.04)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 4.
      MP2 calls $0.10, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.2, Hero raises to $0.6, MP2 raises to $1, SB folds, Hero calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($2.20) 6, 6, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Turn: ($2.20) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      River: ($2.20) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.60, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.20.

      Do I go wrong here pre-flop, if so where?

      Hello.. I think you should use poker strategy converter because your hands don't show the suits.

      Anyway, the preflop 3bet in BB... why? To me that's a fold, unless you know SB is usually weak and you're trying to play him headsup. And it should be even more clear fold when Mp2 4bets after open limping preflop! Although it's only 0.40 to call... you can easily get yourself into dominated territory (e.g. better A)... but as played, you can probably call if your A was suited and hope for a flush or 2 pair... folding to any other flops.

      I did do it in pokerstrategy hand converter but when i copy/pasted the suits didnt show up, my A4 was suited.

      I dnt think I shouls fold there to his minraise, I was trying to isolate in position as well as having alot of fold equity. I think possible just calling 1BB would have been the best option. But i think folding to a rais of 0.40 to my 0.60 is too weak.
