Hero folds, SB requests TIME
I think I'm going to get responses polarized on both ends: You shouldn't have called that in the first place PF, or this is too nitty of a fold. I just don't want stacks in the middle with TPTK. For those saying "check behind," why are you saying that? Are you expecting a check / raise here, given the "weak" half pot flop bet? Do you not want additional money in now that you're supposedly "ahead?"

Final Pot: $34.40
