      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J:heart: , J:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.08, UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.27, 7 folds, Hero calls $0.19.

      Flop: ($0.57) A:heart: , Q:club: , 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, UTG2 raises to $1.02, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $1.74

      --- I'm thinking I should have folded to the re-raise here, and as for my post-flop, maybe check, called a small bet on the flop since there was a flush draw, a possible straight draw, and two overcards. Thoughts?

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Such a 3bet preflop is more often for value, likely QQ+, AK in such situation and against this one we don't get that great equity, so therefore I'd also prefer to fold or either depending on the opponent go broke. With just Calling you put yourself into trouble situations as you have OP on the board or something similar and the opponent tries to go all-in, he will likely have a better OP. Postflop I'd bet a bit bigger, ~$0.30 and fold to his raise but could be also possible just to Check/Fold if we expect him not to fold his KK.

      Best regards.
