      Hi Gervinho:)

      In this hand I decided to fold the flop raise, because there are not so much things he can actually have on the flop. He can have sets and I guess that Aces and Kings are also possible because he has 3bet of 0% after 52 hands. May be a coincidence. But still - was this correct or would you rather shove the stack?

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      CO: $3.07 (61.4 bb) 21/10/0 after 52 hands
      BTN: $5.28 (105.6 bb)
      SB: $4.85 (97 bb)
      BB: $6.95 (139 bb)
      UTG+2: $16.24 (324.8 bb)
      MP1: $5 (100 bb)
      MP2: $5 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.33 (46.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 3 Q 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO raises to $0.85, Hero folds

      $1.07 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: 3 Q 8
      CO mucked and won $1.03 ($0.53 net)
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$0.50 net)

      I think bet/folding here is too weak. Bet/shoving is too strong on the other hand so I think bet/call and check/call the Turn is my standard line to allow him to keep bluffing.

      people do all kinds of random stuff on your limit so I think folding is a bit too weak with TPTK
