      Hi there,

      I was on the Big Blind and was dealt K:spade: Q:heart: this I was quite happy with.

      This was on a 5/10 NL table.

      I had $2.20.

      One person bet minimum stake so I bet 5BB($.50) when it was my turn. Correct so far.

      Back to the person who had bet minimum, he then went all in.

      What should I do in this situation? (I folded, but was it right?)

      Also on another note, if you get make money e.g. start at $2 and get to $3 you should leave the table. However is it worth sitting in until the blind gets around to you but not posting it? Would you still earn party point doing this or do you need to play the hands to get these? Also is it worth doing so in case an AA comes up?

      So many questions.......

      Hi sm9ai!

      In this situation your fold is correct. Your decision depends on the raisesize:stacksize ratio as you can find here.

      It is definitely worth to sit there and wait for the blinds because you are collecting StrategyPoints by doing so. If you are getting AA during that time and don't know what to do with, simply push all-in preflop. If you don't have any clue about the BigStack strategy this move is the best thing you can do.

      Good luck at the tables!
