      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $23.20
      CO:
      $47.83
      BU:
      $45.35

      0.5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:heart: , Q:heart:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $3.00, CO calls $3.00, BU calls $3.00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($10.50) 5:diamond: , 6:diamond: , J:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $5.25, BU folds, Hero calls $5.25.

      Turn: ($21.00) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $39.58 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $60.58

      CO seems loose/passive with low pfr - he may well be calling with some of the hands others would raise. On that basis, probably a mistake to call on the flop - hypnotised by 3 connected :heart: I guess and thinking I might be getting a good price to see another card since any K or Q may give me the best hand while any :heart: T or A give my hand additional potential. But am I just pouring money away? Should I conclude that AF 1.2 and low pfr spell trouble when villain bets at this flop?
      Thanks

      Hmm, I don't think calling this flop is such a good move because you don't have enough outs for drawing. Your OC outs are somewhat dodgy because a KJ or QJ are not unlikely, and the draws are backdoors.

      As it's a 3-way pot, ch/fold would be my choice.

      Folding preflop ain't a mistake as well, playing OOP with KQs suxxxx
