      UTG: $16.42 (65.7 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb)
      BTN: $28.31 (113.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $27.25 (109 bb)
      BB: $23.84 (95.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: Q:diamond:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.50, BB calls $2.25, BTN folds

      Flop: ($5.75) T:heart: 7:heart: Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.53, BB raises to $16, Hero raises to $24.75 and is all-in, BB calls $5.34 and is all-in

      Villain instantly made that raise on the flop. For me it looks more like he is having a draw, a hand with enough value to play but not strong enough to ever consider trapping.

      Would you play the same?

      The only hand that beats you is TT. His sizing looks like a draw which wants FE so I also go broke.

      What he showed up with? Cause that instaraise looks pretty strong to me

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Being a bit deeper I'd 3bet also bigger.

      Totally disagree that only TT beats us. :) BB isn't really the best player according his stack, so I'd also include 77/QQ+. But I wouldn't exclude weaker Qx hands. So practically the only hope is that he is calling with super loose range here, as QJ+. But how many of them would he raise?

      Board: T:heart: 7:heart: Q:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    63.19%  54.61%   8.58% { QQ+, TT, 77, AQs, KQs, AhKh, AhJh, KhJh, AQo, KQo }
      UTG+1  36.81%  28.23%   8.58% { AsQd }

      I'd Bet the flop smaller ~$3 and Bet/Fold it even without any information on the guy.

      Best Regards.
