      Dealt to Hero K:heart: A:heart:

      UTG calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1, fold, fold, fold, MP3 calls $1, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.75

      FLOP ($3.37) Q:heart: 6:club: T:spade:

      UTG checks, Hero bets $2.52, MP3 raises to $5.04, UTG folds, Hero folds

      MP3 wins $8.01

      I raised to try and take down the limp to be honest. I thought it would likely fold around and if UTG reraised I'd probably have to fold. I have no information on either of these players. I have only played them about 15 hands. Was surprised to get the caller. Way more suprised at the raise. Should I not Cbet in this situation though. Maybe it's better to check call the flop and check fold the river unless I hit the straight?

      Cbet in this spot is completely fine and standard, so don't worry about that. I'm not sure about the raise to be honest, it's a min-raise on such a dry flop that it makes me think of either extreme weakness or an absolute monster, so you're either against air/draw here or a set imo. I'd probably fold but i'm a nit. Wait for some proper feedback on that :D

      Since you have overcards+ guthost I would not really b/f AK that spot. He may min-raise smt like Qx to see where he is at and then check back, also he may have there draws that AK is ahead
