      Correct fold. You really didn't have another choice.

      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, 4 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.20.
      I think something is wrong here.

      Myeah it should say raise "by $0.40" or "to $0.50"... some site do weird things in their HH's.

      Hi,


      Either you think that guy is reasonable and won't do that without KK+, in which case you win nothing by seeing a flop because you can't outdraw these hands often enough so folding is best, or you think he might randomly do that with worse hands, in which case AK is too strong to fold and you want to 5bet shove preflop while you likely have good equity.

      When in doubt, either call with good odds and play it cautiously if you hit, or just muck it and move on.


      Hope it helps.
