      Hello keoghh,

      Well, first of all I don't really get your raise? I mean what you trying to accomplish with it? Since if you trying to protect from draw then you ain't protecting with such a small raise. Rather do it normally ~$0,30 or something similar.

      Also even if you raise then I'd still fold to the 3bet, I rarely doubt that he is picking this line with just bluff/semi-bluff. Often times it's a trap.

      Best regards.
