      SB shows Q:heart: A:diamond: (Pre 24%, Flop 55.5%, Turn 72.7%)
      SB wins $4.13

      The pre-flop raiser was a rock he had 11/6 so I was playing it safe and called behind to see if I get a lucky flop and I kinda did.
      I think that my flop re-raise was good. But the turn call, I kinda knew, well I was 90% sure he had AQ but I had the flush draw so good or bad turn call?

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Well, I don't really see why you should raise the flop? I mean you ain't gonna achieve much with it. You gonna force a lot weaker hands to fold and if they come over the top like this then you most likely are behind and ain't doing very good in this spot:

      Board: A:club: 6:spade: Q:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    54.26%  54.00%   0.26% { 66, AQs, A6s, AQo, A6o }
      UTG+1  45.74%  45.47%   0.26% { AsKs }

      At the best a flip for us. :) Rather keep weaker hands in the play and Call. You are drawing for the nuts and he might be drawing as well. You can always decide what you gonna do on turn if he bets again small.

      Best Regards.
