      - MP2: 54/0/1.6, 40+ hands
      - SB: 52/9/2.7, 80+ hands
      - BB: 13/8/1.0, 60+ hands

      Explanation:
      After the flop I didn't worry about the MP2 and SB as I saw them calling with wide range and playing after the flop without any plan, but the BB gave me problems. There was a possible flush draw so when he bet on flop I wasn't sure did he hit the trips, top/over pair or did he have a FD. That's why I raised him.
      When he RR me I guess I should have folded, but I felt kind of pot commited so I gave it a try. There was also so much in the pot already I wasn't sure if folding is proper option.
      Since turn didn't bring third heart for flush, I decided to call his bet.

      Since he had AF just 1.0, I guess I should put more attention to his flop and turn bets/raise.

      Hello Samo2,

      Of course it's reasonable to raise it there and try to protect but the question also is that with what he is doing such a min-raise? I don't ever think that he is taking such a line with just Tx, therefore I'd rather even fold to his raise. We still have more than $3 in our stack, ain't worth risking. As you plan to Call it, then rather ship it on flop.

      Best regards.
