      I was very tempted to call his all-in as my elephant stats showed him as fairly loose but I am assuming the fold was sensible (I hope).

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG1:
      $7.46
      MP1:
      $9.60
      Hero:
      $4.95

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9:diamond: , 9:spade:
      UTG1 calls $0.25, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, UTG1 raises to $7.46 (All-In), 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $9.56

      The fold was very sensible. The villain has 26/6 stats which mean he only raises his very best hands. His reraising range would be even smaller like AA-JJ, AK and you would have been a pretty big underdog. Also often on the microlimits weak player limp/raise KK/AA since they're afraid everyone will fold if they raise UTG and they don't want to waste KK/AA.

      So in conclusion a good fold ;)

      Hey Spidey1978,

      I would check his limp/raise stat if you play with statistics, otherwise I would just continue with AK/TT+ and make a note of his play.
