      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 = ($3.59)
      MP1 = ($17.57)
      MP2 = ($10.40)
      MP3 (Hero) = ($22.71)
      CO = ($11.26)
      BU = ($13.93)
      SB = ($10.00)
      BB = ($10.00)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Ac, Ks.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1) Ah, 9c, Jh (3 players)
      SB checks, MP1 bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70, SB folds.

      Turn: ($2.4) Qc (2 players)
      MP1 bets $2.40, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      MP1 regular TAG stack size was in my mind
      should i have called the turn or raised???
      should have i raised on the flop???

      Hello sickest89,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Preflop: Both are actually fine, either you 3bet or just Call. Although having people behind us and a lot therefore I might even prefer 3betting and not giving them great odds for a call.
      Postflop: Not much you can do on turn, I'd rather as well fold there while a lot 2pairs are possible, sets and of course sets as well.

      Best regards.
