      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP1: $5 (50 bb)
      MP2: $12.38 (123.8 bb) 58/0/0.6/0.0/32
      Hero (MP3): $10 (100 bb) 18/9/10.0/0.0/34
      CO: $4.55 (45.5 bb)
      BTN: $10.45 (104.5 bb)
      SB: $9.35 (93.5 bb)
      BB: $10.82 (108.2 bb)
      UTG+1: $5.12 (51.2 bb)
      UTG+2: $10.05 (100.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T A
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15) 5 T 3 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.70, MP2 raises to $1.20, Hero folds

      Although the opponent had a very loose range he was barely aggressive. I raised to protect my hand against a flush draw after his weak bet but a 3-Bet was the last thing I was expecting for him. I assumed he could have a 2 Pair or a set since he is rarely aggressive (AF 0.6) and I didn't think there were many cards that would improve my hand. What do you think?

      Results: $2.55 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 5 T 3
      MP2 mucked and won $2.44 ($1.24 net)
      Hero mucked T A and lost (-$1.20 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      What I would do there is that I would raise a bit bigger, take the bet just as Check and add the sum into pot, so normal CB would be for you how much? Afterwards I do agree that it's rather a fold, it's going to be very often a trap.

      Best Regards.
