      You only have 6 outs, the board is not drawy, the opponent is not over agressive. Easy fold.

      Hi,

      Flop: Your cbet is a bit low. Make it 2/3 pot so ~0.80 (close to direct shove)
      Then after you get raised you have to call 0.90 (instead of 1.20) for a 3.60 pot which gives you better pot odds and then it is ok to call.

      Hey richard1817,


      Either cBet $0.8/call or shove directly postflop. As played you have only invested $0.5 with a remaining stack of $1.2

      If you cBet a bit bigger, your odds/outs become a little bit better. I prefer a shove though postflop

      Best regards,
      Gerv
