      So this was standard raise, BB calls and then the flop comes . . . .


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $5.00
      BB:
      $2.08
      UTG1:
      $5.00
      UTG2:
      $2.00
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $3.36
      MP3 (Hero):
      $1.94
      CO:
      $4.57
      BU:
      $5.67


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, A.
      UTG2 posts deadblind, UTG1 folds, UTG2 checks, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20, UTG2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.57) 7, K, 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.49, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.72.

      So if the BB calls my raise instead of reraising I I don't think he has the strongest hand. When he bets like a quarter pot of the flop I am not so convinced, maybe K but with shit kicker? So I try to be cheeky and take the pot based on the situation instead of the cards, it seems to be working overall but also maybe it's a bit of luck? Should I make plays like this or you think it will cost money in long run?

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Hey

      If you raise here, raise bigger to $0.6 so you can bluffshove the Turn. To get him off his hand (Kx will never fold btw!) this mostly requires a 2 street bluff

      Best regards,
      Gerv
