I'm playing the "Chips on the Beach" simulation on APT. This particular game is 2/5, very loose with a lot of passive callers. Everybody has around 100BB. I'm in the small blind, and I have A5s. Three players limp. The pot is $22 and it costs me $3 to see the flop.
In this scenario, every APT adviser recommended folding. What I don't understand is why. Yes, my position is bad, but I'm getting approximately 7:1 odds of calling and since the game is loose, it's unlikely that big blind behind me is going to raise. Most likely he will check, and I will get to see the flop. So is this really a fold?
