      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:club: , J:heart: . MP3 posts a blind of $0,04.
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0,04, MP2 folds, MP3 checks, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,24, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,44, Hero calls $0,20.

      Flop: ($0,96) A:heart: , 7:heart: , T:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0,56, Hero folds.

        Maybe a little weak, but I don't beat anything but a FD or a bluff, and due to his re-raise pf I find it pretty likely that I'm beat. Would it be better to raise him to make sure he isn't on a draw?

      Final Pot: $1,52

      Best regards,

      Hi Mugge88!

      I would fold preflop against this shortstack because you cannot call for setvalue. After his reraise the best case would be if you are up against AK in a 50-50 situation. But all other hands he reraises you with (QQ, KK, AA) have you beat.
      As you played it: nice fold on the flop.

      Good luck at the tables!
