      BB: $3.30 (82.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A T
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.32) 2 A 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, BB raises to $0.48, Hero folds

      Is this OK?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Well, he could just smell weakness in your CB size and that might be a reason why he raised you. But of course while we don't know anything about him it's difficult to continue. Most likely myself I would make a normal CB like $0,24 or something similar and reevaluate the further action.

      Another way to play the hand is just to turn your hand into bluff-catcher if you think he is aggressive enough to bluff and just Check/Call the flop. :)

      Best Regards.

      But I thought on such a dry board aggainst 1 opp. standard CB should be 1/2 pot. Why do you say "normal CB like $0,24"? It's 3/4 pot, isn't it too big to be "normal"?

      I would still make at least 20 cents then if you want to CB smaller. To avoid exactly such spots as I mentioned that they might see weakness in your play and then it will be tough for us to continue if we get raised.
