      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 $4.02
      MP3 (Hero) $1.54

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.04, MP1 raises to $0.12, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.36, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($0.82) Q, A, 5 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.64, Hero ?

      I could be behind here. I knew that. I now see that I needed villain to make this bet with almost every other Ace I win on top of AK, AQ, A5, QQ, Q5, 55 to be slightly ahead. If of course he had a made hand.

      How would you play that?

      I called this maybe because I made a 3-bet preflop and already spent more money. If it was a single raise preflop I could fold more easily. Does it worth calling now after the 3-bet?

      Hey datalogg,

      I would certainly go all-in here for the sole purpose your stack is merely $1.18 left and if you call you only have about the same cBet size left on the Turn

      I think he can call any Ax and any flushdraw after you shove so you are mostly ahead here

      Best regards,
