      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:spade: , J:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.16, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.16, 4 folds, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.50) A:diamond: , Q:diamond: , 6:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.36, MP2 raises to $0.72, BB folds, Hero calls $0.36.

      Hero...

      Should I be raising on the flop or is calling fine? Should I ever fold here? Also when I hit a flush draw on the turn should I c/c, b/f? Help!

      Hello Scooney,

      Well, 3betting is really questionable here since you can't really 3bet for value on flop. Rathe rather would take a passive line and most likely depending on the size on turn I'd decide either you Check/Call or not. Donking just doesn't make sense while he could easily raise you again and you wont have that great implied odds anymore.

      Best Regards.
