      Both villain sample sizes are small, but both are having the fish tag.

      What about the fold here? I think, that in limped pots it's ok to fold this one. The villains pot bet was almost instant on the turn, so i thought it's not a big mistake to give up here. We also have the second fish after us to act...

      Hi,


      It's okay I guess given the 3-way sandwich thing, I feel somewhat bad about it tho because I see this quite often from people who just now realized the board could be scary for their top pair and decide to try and protect it even tho it's too late. Plus the villains are quite shortstacked so it's not like we'd be risking a lot anyway. I think I might just take my chances and go with it in that spot without further reads.

      Especially if you're playing a lot of tables or you happen to feel that the fish's line is stronger than I believe it to be, nothing wrong with giving up the ugly spot and focusing on something else.


      Hop it helps.
