      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $9.75 (97.5 bb)
      MP2: $9.37 (93.7 bb)
      UTG+2: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $9.90 (99 bb)
      CO: $11.79 (117.9 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $4.15 (41.5 bb)
      MP3: $12.35 (123.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J A
      UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) 3 8 Q (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.68, MP3 folds, BB raises to $1.36, Hero calls $0.68

      Turn: ($3.67) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.74, Hero folds

      Results: $3.67 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: 3 8 Q 3
      BB mucked and won $3.49 ($1.83 net)
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$1.66 net)

      I thought FD and 1 over would be good on Q high board so I bet and called BB's minreraise(Qx or some pair is possible)
      On turn, I fold because turn card is bad and I can't call with FD 1over only with 1 street behind.

      Hey Gonchan,

      Calling BB's raise on the Flop is not really a good play. Here is why:
      • If you hit the Turn (Ace or ) and he has QJ, do you think he is happy getting it in on the Turn when you raise him all-in?

      • If you miss on the Turn & he bets again, do you call again? How much equity do you have against a Queen on the Flop? & what is your equity on the Turn versus the same hand but the Turn is a 3?


      By maximizing your equity & chance that action can get killed on the Turn, we should shove the Flop & that is what the strategy tells us to do
