      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $9.46
      CO:
      $5.14
      BU:
      $6.82
      SB:
      $5.24
      BB:
      $6.05
      UTG1:
      $2.87
      UTG2:
      $5.74
      MP1:
      $5.60
      MP2(Hero):
      $5.28


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, A.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.13, Hero calls $0.13, 4 folds, BB calls $0.08.

      He makes almost a min-raise so I just flat called. Otherwise I would have raised anyway.

      Flop: ($0.41) T, 8, Q (3 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.30, BB calls $0.30, MP1 folds.

      Standard.

      Turn: ($1.01) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.70, BB raises to $3.11, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      He check raises me. I thought I may have been pretty unlucky to make two pairs, looks to me he completed an OESD. Correct fold here? Or shove?

      Final Pot: $1.71.

      Hi,

      it's easier to 3-bet/fold to 0.50$.
      As played: BB could easily hold J9, KJ BUT he also Ax or just bluff on scarecard with JT...
      For me it's a shove with top two but a fold is not that bad.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      also like 3-bet pf, although call is likely also fine ip
      I wouldn´t fold turn, since he can easily shove there worse two pair or maybe even AK

      I think you guys are right. This is my first session at NL5 so may have not been so comfortable with the bigger amount of money involved.
