      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , K:club:
      MP2 raises to $0,75, MP3 calls $0,75, CO calls $0,75, BU raises to $4,00, 4 folds, CO calls $3,25.

      Flop: ($9,85) A:club: , 9:club: , 7:spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $7,39 (All-In), BU calls $7,39.

      Turn: ($24,63) 9:diamond:
      River: ($24,63) 8:heart:


      Final Pot: $24,63

      What should I do here preflop? Didn't have stats from BU, so didn't know his 3-bet range. I chose the safest (or weakest) option and folded as it was my first hand on the table, even though with 4-betting I could've got a lot dead money there, Calling would've been the worst option I guess?

      Hi degnic!

      I think it's played well. Although there is a lot of dead money in the pot you will be up against AA, KK or QQ too often, meaning the best case would be a coinflip. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
