So this spot really blows... OTR should we check fold?

CO ($14.77) VPIP: 33, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 3
Button ($15.52)
Hero (SB) ($28.83)
BB ($25) VPIP: 50, PFR: 33, 3B: 33, AF: 0.7, Hands: 6
UTG ($42.03)
MP ($25.15)

Preflop: Hero is SB with A, A
2 folds, CO calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero raises $0.90, BB calls $0.75, CO calls $0.75

Flop: ($3) 8, 4, 2 (3 players)
Hero bets $1.95, BB calls $1.95, CO calls $1.95

Turn: ($8.85) 2 (3 players)
Hero bets $5.75, BB calls $5.75, CO calls $5.75

River: ($26.10) 6 (3 players)

($20.13)Hero does what?

Hi dirt,

Personally I think all the sizings are too small vs. these villains. Sometimes we fall into the trap of playing on auto-pilot and making "standard" sizings, and it loses value or costs us.

Preflop: $1 would be standard for most players here but I would make it $1.25 personally, to increase the chances of isolation, because I'll be OOP post flop vs. anyone who plays, and because the limper is probably paying it, so his preflop limp/call is a bigger mistake.

Flop: Pot it imo. Great board to get action from small pairs, and not be scary to loose/bad players.

Turn: Bet bigger, great turn card for you.

River: I would probably put it in here and fist pump vs. the villain that calls and tables 87o, while sighing vs. the flush. Obv we don't like the diamond, but the 6 is not a scary card to any worse pairs, and they are loose/bad, so with a huge pot in front of them I wouldn't underestimate their ability to call all in with worse hands.

This would look so much nicer if we made it $1.25 pre.

Flop (3.75) Hero bets $3.50, BB calls $3.50, CO calls $3.50

Turn ($14.25) Hero bets all in
(BB $20.25 behind)
(CO $10.02 behind)

River: No action
