  • The big $4.40

    Folding too fast? The raise is small, is the fold just silly? Trying to preserve chips but at the same time you can be too cautious.

      Hi BH,

      Firstly I think the initial open is a bit loose from UTG with no reads to work off of... I might open this hand UTG in some table dynamics, and fold it in others.

      When the action comes back to us, folding is way too tight imo. The villain has clicked it (3b the minimum amount) so it's possible he's got a monster looking for action, and also possible he misclicked raise instead of call. Regardless, we are getting immediate odds of over 6-1 (likely 7-1 as the player behind us will almost certainly call) and have position on the 3-bettor, with a hand that plays decently well multi-way. If it was good enough to put 2.8x in from UTG initially, it's certainly good enough to put another 2.8x in such a favorable situation.
