      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $0.43
      MP3:
      $5.62
      CO:
      $4.76
      BU:
      $1.41
      SB (Hero):
      $2.06
      BB:
      $3.94
      UTG2:
      $3.50


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6, 4.
      MP1 posts deadblind, UTG2 folds, MP1 checks, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) 5, 3, 2 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.04, BB folds, MP1 folds, MP3 raises to $0.18, Hero raises to $0.54, MP3 calls $0.36.

      Turn: ($1.16) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $5.06, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.16.

      This opponent was unknown to me. Called from SB as a speculation as MP3 called and someone posted BB as dead money.

      Was it right to fold on the turn after the line of MP3? If MP3 had a set on the flop he would have me beat, same goes for a FD.

      And is it right to fold a made hand on this limit against unkown? Or shouldn't I give opponents credit for much in this case?

      Folding is okay. A set would probably get it in on the flop. Looks more like a flush than a FH to me.

      Here's a question to consider - if you had AA here, without the ace of clubs, would you consider calling? How about having 88? The reason I'm asking this is because these 3 hands - AA no clubs, 88 and your straight - are esentially the same in this situation, i.e. they are a bluff catcher, because anything the villain is betting for value has you crushed regardless of you having AA or 99 or the straigh. That's because he's not betting for value (I'm assuming at least a bit reason on his part) TT or anything similar. So he's either filled his boat or, more likely, hit his flush.

      So, would you call here with 88? No, I'd assume. Then don't call with straight also.

      since 3c is worst possible card in the deck I think c/f turn is fine
      He is not really raising flop that often with 88, call 3-bet and then shove on that turn card. I think you see a lot of times A high flushdraws or sets in his range that now beat your hand
