      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $1.78
      MP1:
      $10.60
      MP2:
      $1.58
      MP3:
      $1.18
      CO:
      $1.88
      BU (Hero):
      $2.43
      SB:
      $1.11
      BB:
      $2.15


      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J.
      UTG2 raises to $0.07, MP1 calls $0.07, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.07, CO calls $0.07, Hero raises to $0.42, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.35, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($1.08) 8, Q, 4 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1.08, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.08.

      To me it looked to much like villain had pocket A's or K's. He is basicly going all-in giving me about 2:1 pot odds. Dont know if calling was an option here?

      Hi,


      Hard to say, I don't think calling nor folding are bad options. Some players will still (retardedly) play AQ/QQ+ like that so folding is okay, some players will however play all sorts of worse pocket pairs like that in a "his AK missed i'm going broke" sort of way so calling can't be awful.

      Depends on what you think this particular guy called with preflop. If he's not loose enough to stick around with a lot of small/medium pocket pairs there is a good chance he was just trying to get the other callers to come along with a big hand. If he is loose enough he could just be randomly spazzing out with a pair / something else.


      Hope it helps.
