I have only been playing for a few months, clocking about 600 11s. I play tighter than my mother in laws wallet for the firsat few rounds, but I am trying to find the situations were I am passing on good situations in the name of safety. Is this one?

It appeared to me that villain was probably trying to defend his ace against the flush draw. Tight me said fold its early, However he could fold to a push and still have plenty chips. If he called I probably had a shed load of outs anyway. I just dont know if it worth it at this stage, or if this even a situation I should be considering.

Any thoughts

you were given a very nice draw hand, but did not receive the odds to get to the turn. i fold this, early with a decent stack.

easy fold. if you thought there was a DECENT chance villain would fold to a push, then you can push. however, most of these people will not fold, so this is an easy fold.

Easy fold but preflop drew some nice odds.
