      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , K:club:
      MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, 1 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to 0.6, 1 folds, MP3 calls $0.60, 2 folds,

      Turn: 6:club: ( $7.3 )
      Hero checks, MP3 checks,

      River: Q:heart: ( $7.3 )
      Hero checks, MP3 checks,

      Final Pot: $6.94

      Was my call on the flop right? I did'n know anything about the opponent.
      The pot odds were 1:4.2 to call. I had the 2 overcards, a backdoor flush and backdoor straight draw. But can i count on those backdoors here? The opponent's stack will be less then the pot on the next street and he might push all-in and even if i hit one card of the draw on the turn (as it happened) i can't call a possible all-in because i don't have the right odds.

      Another question:
      He showed AsJh. Was he right checking it down?
      I guess, he was afraid of me having an overpair and floating him.

      Hi kesgab!

      Fold on the flop. Your continuation bet is ok, but after he raises you, you don't have the odds to call. And his stack is too small which means you don't have implied odds.
      If he puts you on an overpair it's ok to check it down because there are not many draws possible.

      Good luck at the tables!
