      UTG elCIGALITA (€5.32)
      CO DrunkenHorseYEP (€10)
      BTN Ill4betYouaTON (€10)
      SB Hero (€14.19)
      BB CoolGerila (€10)

      Pre-Flop: (€0.15, 5 players) Hero is SB J:diamond: 9:diamond:
      elCIGALITA calls €0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls €0.05, CoolGerila checks

      Flop: 5:diamond: 2:diamond: 7:diamond: (€0.30, 3 players)
      Hero bets €0.20, CoolGerila folds, elCIGALITA raises to €0.60, Hero calls or raises ?(

      I guess he could have FD, 7x, overpair or flush. If he has FD re-raise is better, if he has flush it doesn't matter. If he has 7x or OP, call and donk turn is better?

      Hi Tosh5457!

      I am just flatting his raise on flop. Your 3-bet here will push out any overpairs and single pair hands + . Even if 4 hit with J you would be quite ok.

      If he-is moderately aggressive I would just let him bet it for me on turn and reshove. As he is short, he might call even FD here.

      Ok, I went all-in and he called with a lower flush.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      I actually like 3betting there on flop for the given reason:
      1) We will be OOP against him, hard to extract value.
      2) With our plan to Check/Raise then turn, he could easily Check behind with his A high FD with he could still go broke on flop.
      3) Also against his stack and more often I think he would go broke there anyway, since such stacks when they decide to raise then they are not very likely go fold it anyway.

      Therefore overall, I see going broke on flop much better and we get a lot more value by that than slowplaying and giving away free cards, what could easily kill our action when there another :diamond: arrives.

      Best regards.
