      Villain 53/11/1 over 224 hands.

      Villain was playing as if on tilt and I had taken about 40BBs from him a few hands earlier.

      Should I have raised larger from BB or was a standard 3 x the original bet ok?

      Was I running scared to fold once raised on the flop or was it ok to think I asked the question and got the answer?

      Maybe a c/f would have been better on the flop, although it might be seen as showing weakness.

      What do you think?

      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players

      UTG: $3.81
      UTG+1: $5.90
      MP1: $10.43
      MP2: $7.95
      CO: $10.50
      BTN: $10.00
      Hero (SB): $11.79
      BB: $10.21

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :heart: K :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.20, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.30) 8 :heart: Q :heart: 7 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, UTG raises to $1.80, Hero folds

      Hello Cooleyman,

      Preflop: Yeah, I'd usually even raise it to $0,80. 4x his raise.
      Postflop: While he is such a station then you can as well just Check/Fold it here as well. A lot of connectors hit + broadways as well. Although it ain't like a mistake to CBet it with some backdoors but fold to the min-raise.

      Best regards.
