      I thought if he has good made hand, he would raise on flop and c/r with 3 which is often lag so this c/r tells me he has draw hand so I called.
      Is it OK?
      raise tell me he has draw hand.

      Hey, im no professional, but from what ive learnt in the articles. I think you should re-raise on the flop to ~$3, in order to protect your hand from flush draws and straight draws, i think your bet sizing on the turn should have been bigger, then when he re-raises im inclined to think he is on a draw due to the fact that you should play draws aggresively against a single opponent, and then a call is the correct decision.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Even if I am going to Call the flop then practically you have to ship it on turn rather than let them draw. Doesn't really make sense to bet it $2,44 while you have less than 1/2 stack left.

      But the question rather is if we even beat much on flop? So overall it's pretty marginal Call. While you may understand that there ain't that many hands which you easily beat.

      Best regards.

      I thought if first raiser have KT, he would shot second barrel.
      and cold caller seems to have draw or Kx because of not barrel on turn.
      So if I choose plan based on "TPTK is good" thought, I should reraise on flop?
      or even call on flop its marginal so its not good to reraise?

      With re-raising the problem is that you ain't allowing a lot worse hands to continue and even if he has some kind of weak pair/weak Kx then he ain't gonna continue. Therefore I'd just Call and reevaluate it on turn and most likely ship it if the action is given to us while I expect them to bet themselves if they have even a strong made hand to protect from any kind of draw.
