      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      MP2 ($3.20)
      MP3 ($6.06)
      CO ($4)
      Button ($5.72)
      SB ($2.60)
      Hero (BB) ($10.38)
      UTG ($2.96)
      UTG+1 ($5.36)
      MP1 ($2.51)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, 9
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.04, MP1 calls $0.04, 3 folds, Button calls $0.04, SB calls $0.02, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.20) K, Q, 9 (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.15, UTG+1 raises $0.65, MP1 calls $0.65, Button calls $0.65, 1 fold, Hero folds

      Turn: ($2.30) 5 (3 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1.70, MP1 raises $1.82 (All-In), Button calls $1.82, UTG+1 calls $0.12

      River: ($7.76) 7 (3 players, 1 all-in)
      UTG+1 checks, Button bets $0.04, UTG+1 calls $0.04

      Total pot: $7.84

      BTN was a 24 VP$IP/ PFR 2 / 7.3 AF, UTG+1 was a 15/7/4.6

      I just felt I was against two monsters and my two pair have little to no chance of improving.

      Hi,


      It's fine. If you're ahead you're probably up against a lot of pair+draw hands that all combined would still outdraw you quite often, and if you're behind you're in really bad shape against stuff like JT/KQ.

      Hence it's not particularly worth it to 3-bet the flop and go broke unless you're convinced they're all crazy enough to go broke with crap, which looking at UTG1's stats so far he probably isn't. BU and MP1 look quite bad tho, so if it wasn't for UTG1 being the center of action with his tight stats I probably wouldn't fold.


      Hope it helps.
