      Hero showed Q K and lost (-$18.10 net)

      Should I raise the flop? And I thought I should have folded on the turn when he shoved. Do you agree?

      Would prefer 3-bet pf. c/r flop is fine line, but if you want also to keep in your wider c/c range with Qx or draws then I think c/c should also be fine.

      I would not c/r turn and then fold to shove. Sure he can have there better hand, but he can also shove all his two pair hands that you're ahead of.

      Bets regards,
