      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players

      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $3.60
      CO: $3.68
      BTN: $2.56
      Hero (SB): $4.98

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      UTG raises to $0.12, fold, BTN calls $0.12, Hero raises to $0.36, fold, UTG calls $0.24, BTN calls $0.24

      Flop: ($1.12, 3 players) 9:spade: 5:heart: 6:club:
      Hero bets $0.80, UTG calls $0.80, BTN raises to $2.13, Hero raises to $4.62 and is all-in, fold, BTN calls $0.07 and is all-in

      Turn: ($6.32, 2 players) 4:spade:

      River: ($6.32, 2 players) K:spade:

      BTN shows 6:spade: 5:spade: (Flush, King High) (Pre 22%, Flop 74%, Turn 82%)
      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:club: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 78%, Flop 26%, Turn 18%)
      BTN wins $6.01

      Should I have folded this on the flop or play it out any different than I did?

      when u get raised in an mw pot, chances for bluff are decreased dramatically.

      so in an srp Id fold, but in a 3bet pot, id broke

      your pre sqzsize is way to small imo, we have to protect our hand, and build the pot already

      Hello Tunatic,

      Preflop: Why do you raise so small? Normal raise is a must here and not give good odds for anything to draw.

      As played
      Postflop: While you have people behind you and we don't know much about UTG who could easily be even trapping and you get raised in multiway pot then I'd just Bet/Fold it to avoid any marginal situations. If you were just against BTN then calling could be an option.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks for the answers, guys.

      So, what would you consider a "normal" 3-bet raise size? 4BB (to $0.48) or even more? Should I 3-bet to such an amount every time or just in this particular case? For example, I'm trying to squeeze, does such a big 3-bet still make sense?

      Normally I'd do vs 3xBB raise and being OOP 4x opponents raise and of course we also add the Call.
