Default Do I need to pay this off??

villain is 40/13/1.3. no read that would indicate that he does or does not like to slowplay.

Preflop: Hero is CO with A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
UTG calls, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, SB calls, BB calls, UTG calls.

Flop: (8 SB) 5[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks.

Turn: (4 BB) A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, SB folds, BB folds, UTG calls.

River: (6 BB) 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
UTG checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, <font color="#CC3333">UTG raises</font>


May I fold, please?

************************************************** ***********************

SSSH readers: I'm really sorry I had to lock such an interesting hand thread because of flaming. I've already conveyed my feelings on this thread to some of you by PM. There are several others of you that I greatly respect who in my opinion need to chill a little. It takes two to fight and next time I would appreciate it if you would consider whether the argument is really worth it.

To make up in some small way to OP for killing his hand I will offer my personal thoughts.

1. The PFR is fine but folding is also OK versus a 40/13.

2. I would never bet this flop.

3. Easy river bet. I might call the river but it's close. I always get suspicious when the river card has ruined several hands (A6/A5/65).

Happy New Year guys.

I would call, but that's probably a leak of mine.

thanks guys, I did in fact fold.

edit to add: afterwords it just seemed like such a great shot for someone to take a shot at me. however upon further thought I doubt many people think I can fold TP here.

RIVER: I would fold.

PS: PREFLOP: I also fold A9o unless I'm first in from MP on which I raise.

I think this is a good fold, unless you have some read, or some reason to believe , that he would be taking a shot at you here. The way the hand is played it certainly looks like you have an A , so he probably expects you to call his chk raise.

On the flop I am not thrilled about A9 with a limper in front of me, particularly if the blinds are loose and will probably call.

I frequently raise A9 after one limper. I would say more often than not.

If by frequently you mean almost always, I would agree.

I like the river fold.

Why are we folding this river? I am confused here? His agression isnt abnormally low so he could have an ace. Is the 9 kicker the problem here? I need same reasoning since this may be a leak of mine.
