      Arghh... nightmare situation, and my first day!

      Thoughts? I didn't think he had AA/KK (obviously one of them did afterall) but I thought they I had a reasonable chance and cause I'd already contributed to pot, I only had to call a relatively small amount to stay in - I thought the 'pot odds' seemed reasonable?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.74 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A:diamond: , K:club: . CO posts a blind of $0.00.
      BB posted big blind of just $0.00 and is all-in.
      Hero raises to $0.08, UTG2 calls $0.08, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.38, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.30, UTG2 raises to $0.68 (All-In), MP3 calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($2.07) 2:club: , 2:diamond: , 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($2.07) 2:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.10, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($2.07) 5:heart: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $2.07

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows a full-house, fives full of deuces (5s 5d)
      MP3 shows a full-house, deuces full of aces (Ac Ah)

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, fives full of deuces (5s 5d)

      Guy currently playing 33/3 makes a huge 3bet after you open from UTG, snap fold AKo. Calling off 20% of your stack out of position with a drawing hand is horrible, and MP3 is too tight for us to profitable shove on him.

      Given the odds overcalling after UTG2 pushes is fine once you get there, and on that board he's likely never folding whatever pocket pair he has, so check/folding is fine.

      Hope it helps.
