      Hero raises to $0.30, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($13.55) J (2 players)


      River: ($13.55) Q (2 players)


      Final Pot: $13.55.

      Results follow:

      BB shows two pairs, sevens and fours(4c 7h).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kd Kh).

      BB wins with two pairs, sevens and fours(4c 7h).



      what could he have there?
      i was thinking that he would have been bad enough to do it with gutshot draws.
      at the same time, it was also highly likely that he could have sets.

      i thought that a better line would have been to call the flop and re-evaluate the turn and plan on seeing a cheap showdown, folding to big bets.

      Against halfstack go broke on the flop - you risk losing value from 88-QQ and worse if you call and let scarecards fall. Tbh on this flop I see you being way ahead/way behind but hard to be good enough to fold this big a overpair to a halfstack at this limit imo.

      Although if you have solid reads on his checkraise being very low and him being nitty - I supose you can fold but still its very hard to find the fold.

      Agreed I'm not folding either against a half stack when in doubt, I see bad players take that line with stuff like 99 regularly.


      Hope it helps.
