      No reads. Is folding the right line here? I can only realistically see JJ+/AK in his range, against which im either dominated or flipping. I know this is NL2, but folding AK pre acceptable here? I'd much rather fold and wait for better spots to come up, rather than flip for a stack at best.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 raises to $0.12, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.36, UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $1.11, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.39.

      His 4 bet means AA , KK maybe AK so your beat by 2 out of 3 . I think that was a good fold .

      Hi,


      Sure, I'm also folding to the 4-bet without reads BBvsMP1. Just make sure you think he's capable of making that big 6bb isoraise with stuff that will fold to a 3-bet or better yet dominated broadways that he'll call the 3-bet with, because if a bigger raise already means JJ+/AK for him there is no point in 3-betting to begin with.


      Hope it helps.
