      I calculated my equity here and even against sets I am getting a break-even call on the turn.

      The question is - was it good to raise the flop with my TP + Nut FD ?

      And when called should I fire the queen again ?

      No special reads on villain.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Against such a min-donk I usually do raise the flop. And the size seems to be as well somewhat fine. Although at some spots I sometimes even like to Check behind on turn since he will anyways have hard time calling with a lot worse and when we do hit our flush on river then we still can extract value, maybe even ship it over his bet when he sees weakness on turn from us by Checking behind. Although your line is fine as well to go broke with TP+nutFD against his stack.

      Best regards.
