      UTG2:
      $10,15

      $5,10
      Hero:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , J:club:
      UTG2 calls $0,10, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0,10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,50, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,25) 9:heart: , K:club: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0,20, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $1,45

      Should I have continued playing this hand in this situation? MP2 is rather a loose player. He limp-called my raise and he raises 26% of his hands preflop. I think sample size 53 is good enough for vp$ip and RPF.

      PS. I don't know why I raised $0,5 instead of $0,6.

      Hi Theman365,

      His donkbet of 2bb is rather weak and I think I will push it for $1.5 to let better hands than A:cJ fold!

      Calling here is crazy since you will often miss the Turn and you'd have to fold to a Turnbet.

      $0.5 is ok but $0.6 is preferred on micro's pure for more value!
