      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $2.00
      SB (Hero):
      $2.20
      BB:
      $2.60
      MP1:
      $2.00
      MP2:

      MP3:
      $3.18
      CO:
      $2.14


      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J.
      2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, BU calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.5) 9, 5, 7 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, MP3 folds, CO raises to $1.25, BU folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.8.

      No reads. In the past i've been inclined to shoving over the top, but seem to lose a lot of money this way. Good fold?

      I think it's fine to fold here , v ugly flop , from his range you can beat only TT and you'll a coin flip vs overcards+FD and obv you'll be crushed by sets, 2 pairs , maybe somtehing looser like top pair + some draws . But from time to time you're reads will improve your decision here , so pay more attention to your op next time !

      Hi,


      It's fine. It would be considered a weak fold by a lot of players but at microstakes often it isn't, unknowns with a full stack making decently sized raises won't be screwing around often enough 4-way to warrant us felting JJ when we're not way ahead of anything except a spazz.


      Hope it helps.
