      I just sat down at the table and had no other info on my opponents.

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB = ($4.58)
      UTG2 = ($1.68)
      MP1 = ($2.03)
      MP2 = ($5.07)
      MP3 = ($6.00)
      CO = ($5.00)
      BU = ($4.11)
      SB(Hero) = ($4.95)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      MP3 posts deadblind, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.20, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.20, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.65, BB folds, MP2 raises to $1.85, 2 folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.95.

      I figured I'm against AK,QQ,KK,AA. Was this a bad estimate? Should I of re-pushed? Thanks a lot ladies and gentlemen!

      I'm 3betting to $0.85 out of position to account for the coldcaller.

      When he 4bets if he's a random player just shove, if he seems like a reasonable tag (which his stack size and bet sizing seem to indicate so far) from these positions i think you're splitting/flipping/dead so folding is okay.

      Hope it helps.
