      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, K.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.9) A, 7, 5 (2 players)

      SB bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $10.7.

      Thought of raising the flop, but how would i play it then? raise/fold? and if he calls, how to play the turn?
      As played i think I should find a fold on the turn.

      Because of flush draw I would raise flop and call a shove. If he has a set theres nothing much you can do anyway.

      As played I don't think you should fold on turn. There's still many hands you can beat.

      But that's all just my opinion, and can be completely wrong :-)

      Hello MRingive,

      And welcome to the forum! Good to see new names posting. Hopefully we will see more of those posts from you.

      About the game, I like your line, I'd rather take pot control here since we also are inducing him to make bluffs and likely keep worse in the play, otherwise Raise/Fold doesn't make sense and likely Raise/Broke sometimes might be even overplayed.

      Best regards.
