      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      MP3 raises to $0.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.35) 3, 5, Q (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.85, MP3 calls $0.65.

      Turn: ($2.05) 6 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.91, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.05.

      What to do in these kinda situations, he could bet here some fd mby Q + fd, I decided to raise and push if turn isnt :heart: and it isn't K or play more passive?

      Hello daun666,

      Guess the raise there is totally fine, although I do often times prefer just Calling to avoid isolating myself against better hands. He might easily have some TP+FD type of hand against which we don't get that great equity. Therefore I'd just Call him and reevaluate it on turn.

      But as played not much to add, we can't continue there.

      Best regards.
