      Known players:       
      UTG2:
      $13.48
      Hero:
      $5.00

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.71 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:heart: , J:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0.25, 4 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($2.85) 2:club: , T:diamond: , 7:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.50, Hero...?

      Overcards and backdoor straight on dry board against a mini donk. Easy fold with 15 BB's still behind me despite the mini donk and a 'big' pot?

      Of course. You have 2 overcards and no straight draw, easy fold imo

      Hey pablomeza,

      any stats or reads on the villain? If not I would prefer to let isolation raise go this time and wait for a better hand.

      As played, if you want to continue in this hand you would have to shove your remaining stack and since your hand is pretty weak(just 2 OCs and a BDFD) I prefer to just give up and wait for a better opportunity.

      Regards,
      burek2000

      Thanks burek2000, I actually took the shoving route and villain showed 87o for an OESD which didn't complete so I won with QJ high :) , but I'm guessing this isn't a very +EV move so I will not be doing this anymore.
