      do not bet on an unraised pot with a draw :) you probably could have seen the turn for free. You want to keep people in the hand in case you hit your draw. And be able to get out for as cheap as you can if you don't.

      What is your question here?

      I just fold preflop without any knowledge about Mp1/Mp3/blinds but let us know what your question is

      Now and then I limp in with suited connectors or small pp. What kind of knowledge would you be looking for? Reads or stats?
      I was just wondering if i get in on a hand like that if it's a good idea to take the pot down on the flop with a fd (and a crappy pair). And is it a good decision to fold on the second ace (or another less scary card).

      Reads ánd stats yes, flopping Pair + FD/SD is rather uncommon and doesn't happen enough ( I think <5% or <8% ) to compensate most check/folds and thus losses
