      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:heart: , J:heart:
      MP1 raises to $0,08, 3 folds, BU calls $0,08, SB folds, Hero calls $0,06.

      Flop: ($0,25) K:spade: , Q:club: , J:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0,18, BU calls $0,18, Hero raises to $0,72, MP1 calls $0,54, BU folds.

      Turn: ($1,87) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,4, MP1 folds.

      Final Pot: $3,27

      Is it ok to call pre-flop in the BB if some else already called?

      I raised the flop for protection and i bet big on the turn for protection as well

      is it ok ? On that turn could i make a smaller bet?

      Hello Bogdan1190,

      Preflop: Should be totally fine if you wont do a lot mistakes postflop. :D While being pretty deep.
      Postflop: Well, kinda close obviously. Myself I might even prefer to donk into the pot to avoid Check behind. But ye as you went for Check/Raise the not much to add, we don't want them to see cheap cards, could even consider raising bigger.

      Best regards.
