      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:heart: , Q:spade:
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $0.12, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.28.

      Flop: ($0.86) A:heart: , T:spade: , 7:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.86, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $1.72

      He bet out within 1 or 2 seconds of the flop being shown, I almost called but decided to play it safe.
      As you can see I only have 87 hands on him & that is the first time he pulled that move. Is it normaly strong or weak when they bet that fast?

      Hello ukwagon,

      It's usually Ax type of hands or maybe even sometimes sets or something similar but I don't expect such potsize bet to be a bluff. So therefore you play was fine, nice hand! Although sometimes I'd prefer to raise it ~$0.36 preflop but your raise is also fine since he opponent is that loose.

      Best regards.
