      Hi all

      Villain is 54/24/3.3 over 54 hands.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $5.25
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $9.05
      MP3:
      $5.07
      CO(Hero):
      $5.00
      BU:
      $4.79
      SB:
      $8.76


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3, A.
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 3 folds.

      Was it right to call? If he hadn't raise I would have raised myself.

      Flop: ($0.27) Q, 8, A (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26.

      I thought this could easily be a continuation bet, therefore my hand did have some showdown value.

      Turn: ($0.79) 7 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.74, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Wasn't sure what to do here. I folded probably because the size of that bet. Was it the right move?

      Final Pot: $0.79.

      Hey!

      Pre-flop is fine because it was a minraise. By calling, you're gonna encourage multiway action and suited aces are great for multiway pots!
      Besides Ax always has very decent equity against most ranges.


      Post flop play is fine. Very few players will be 2nd barreling air here and all of his value 2nd barrels have you beat.
      If he's a crazy aggro fish however, I'd call his turn bet and call again on the river :evil:

      Cheers!
