      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, K.
      MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) 9, 5, Q (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.35, MP3 raises to $2.00, Hero raises to $6.79, MP3 calls $4.79.

      Turn: ($14.15) A (2 players)

      River: ($14.15) T (2 players)

      Final Pot: $14.15.

      Umm. What do we do on the flop? Maybe shove is really bad because c/r is usually strong. I thought about calling and re-evaluating on the turn because I had bd fd+overcard. Or maybe it's just a fold?

      Actually you don't beat anything but a bluff here , he will rarely reraise you with JT or worst Qx type of hands.On this drawless board it's hard to go on with ur hand maybe you can consider a call and go all in if turn brings a diamond but you should know that you are most of cases going all in with just a flushdraw on the turn which will have aproximately 20 % equity against a set and a little bit much against overpairs (not KK) - 30 %.
      If you had stats on him it could be a good play to call him down and call turn / river because his reraise on the flop is super big and most of the cases if the opponent is a much of a fish this will be a random bluff.Otherwise he is strongly representing a set or at least 2 pairs versus which combined you got no more than 15 % eq so even a call isn't profitable as you need to call 1.65$ to win 3$ so it's like 1:2.This can be only justified if you think he will bluff you in this spot at least 1 of 3 times and you got the reads he is doing it this time !

      If he's a random aggro fish capable of doing that with random hands or worse Qx top pairs, either call to let him bluff-jam the turn with air or put it in before it gets scarier for his worse hands, depending on how often you think he's on a pure bluff.

      If he's your usual loose/passive tight/passive fish, you're always behind when he check/pot-raises you, it's not worth continuing.

      Hope it helps.
