      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has Q:spade: A:spade:

      fold, fold, MP raises to $0.75, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.75, fold, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.35, 3 players) A:club: T:diamond: 4:club:
      BB checks, MP bets $1.25, Hero raises to $3.25,

      Open-raiser is 22/20, I didn't want to call the cbet as it would invite the other guy too. But by raising for protection am I not value-towning myself?

      Hello IhasLuck,

      What's your plan if the guy decides to 3bet you? Raising is still fine if you assume that they are capable of paying you with a lot worse. Although I don't really get the purpose of the raise cause you are kinda giving the odds for a FD.

      Best Regards.

      I'd fold to a 3bet, I guess the pfr could call with a worse A but there's not that much combos. Anyway a bigger raise is ok?

      Yeah, I'd do that to gain value from draws. :)
