      SB: $6.22

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04, LP posts DB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.10) Hero has T:diamond: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.04, MP+1 calls $0.04, LP checks, fold, Hero calls $0.04, fold, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.22, 5 players) 3:spade: 8:diamond: T:heart:
      BB checks, MP bets $0.15, MP+1 calls $0.15, fold,

      Should hero raise to 0.45-0.60 here or just call for pot control and possible hand improvement (two pairs, trips, nut flush draw added)?

      The way the hand was continued:
      Hero calls $0.15, fold

      Turn: ($0.67, 3 players) 7:club:
      MP bets $0.32, MP+1 calls $0.32, fold
      River: ($1.31, 2 players) J:spade:
      MP checks, MP+1 bets $0.60, fold MP+1 wins $1.25

      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: With having even the BTN you could as well isolate with the hand. But definitely just Calling ain't wrong either and inviting blinds into the play as well.

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, raising is out of question here. You are just turning your hand into bluff because you ain't gonna continue if you get 3bet or any other action. So therefore at the best we could consider just calling and reevaluating it on turn.

      Best regards.
