      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (5 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (BB) ($4)
      Button ($3.71)
      MP ($4)
      UTG ($10.74)
      SB ($4.50)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, Q
      3 folds, SB calls $0.02, Hero bets $0.12, SB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.32) J, Q, 10 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.25, SB raises $0.50, Hero raises $1, 1 fold

      Total pot: $1.32

      Simple question here, should I have just called the flop re-raise instead of raising again to try and get the money in? And should I have re-raised bigger if I did take that line anyway?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Preflop: Definitely a bigger raise here. :)
      Postflop: Well, I don't really like the idea of min-raising against his min-raise. Just make it normal size! You are giving perfect odds for FD to call which we don't want to.

      Best Regards.

      Well both plays are considerable. There are still couple of hands like AQ/AJ/AT/T9 any kind of FD which we don't want to give free cards. Only reason to think of Calling here is to keep weaker pairs in the hand and also we have position.

      Our equity overall should be also decent one against his range, so I would also plan to go broke here:

      Board: J:diamond: Q:diamond: T:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    62.31%  61.45%   0.87% { KdQs }
      UTG+1  37.69%  36.82%   0.87% { AQs-ATs, QJs, JTs, T9s, Ad8d, 8d7d, 7d6d, AQo-ATo, QJo, JTo, T9o }
