      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):
      $16.60
      MP3:
      $20.95
      CO:
      $16.60
      BU:
      $20.74
      SB:
      $9.77


      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, A.
      MP3 folds, CO calls $0.20, BU raises to $0.80, SB folds, Hero calls $0.60, CO calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($2.5) 3, 8, A (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BU bets $1.87, Hero folds, CO folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.5.

      CO is VP:32/PR:11/AFq:53
      BU is 45/10/55 over 40 hands - no read on CBet.

      OOP I decided to give up vs his PR10.
      Or should I have donkbet maybe?

      Hi,

      Why dont you rebuy to 100xbb?

      I don't like the call pre with ATs OOP. Because I dont think you're ahead of BU isolation range. So fold or re-raise to get initiative. Then you would have an easy cbet/fold spot.

      I did rebuy after this hand, I hadnt noticed. And I dont like to use the auto rebuy.

      Anyway I think you are absolutely right. That's the preFlop play that isn't good here.
      I don't think I'm ahead of BU isolation range either so that's an easy fold then pre?

      Hi,

      Yes, I would fold too since he is still unknown (40 hands). If you have better stats to know if he folds enough to 3bet, then I would 3bet him.

      Ow and another thing :) : You have hit a very good board for your hand as played, and you still want to fold now :(

      Why do you want to call preflop if you c/f on such board?

      Preflop is good, don't fold now.

      if Bu is really 45/10 then I think I´d also fine 3-betting pf to take initiative
      postflop: very standard c/c spot, since he´d c-bet with his whole range and you can extract money from weaker hands like KK-99, some worse Ax hands and unpaired hands like KQ/QJ and so on
