      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $1.91
      SB:
      $2.68
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $2.78
      MP1:
      $3.06
      MP2:
      $4.38
      MP3:
      $1.28
      CO:
      $3.54


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, 4.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.12, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.12, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.37) 3, Q, 4 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.18, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.36, MP2 raises to $0.92, Hero raises to $1.88, MP2 calls $0.96.
      QUESTION: Now I have several options: slow-play and just call (but there is a flush draw on board) or raise - but how much? I don't want to scare the opponent off the hand, yet I want to maximise value. Even though we went all-in here, I want to find the optimal way to squeeze out maximum value with a monster.

      Turn: ($4.13) 6 (2 players)


      River: ($4.13) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.13.

      Hello dember,

      Raise the flop normally, there is no point to slowplay. But min-raising just doesn't make sense. :) We still might even protect from FDs, so raise it normally and get it in.

      Best Regards.
