      BB: $19.75 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 14, CallOpen: 10(49), 3B: 2, AF: 3,2, Hands: 179
      UTG: $11.98 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 5, AF: 2,8, Hands: 419
      MP: $8.26 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 34
      CO: $11.01 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 55
      Hero (BTN): $10.22 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 44535
      SB: $6.07 - VPIP: 45, PFR: 9, 3B: 9, AF: 1,4, Hands: 76

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with T :spade: 9 :spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.28, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.28, 1 fold, BB calls $0.18

      Flop: ($0.89) T :heart: 8 :spade: Q :club: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.89) 2 :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $0.63, BB folds, MP folds

      So my biggest confusion lies here on the flop: should I protect my hand? Few, if any, worse hands are calling me but there are hands that can still outdraw me if I check behind. The openraiser can have overcards – the most notable draw that I should fear. I should very often be ahead so I guess I should have bet the flop already?

      On the turn I just decided that it is about time I started protecting my equity.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Could easily take a stab even on the flop whilst nobody shows interest into the pot. :) But otherwise seems to be fine to Bet the turn and maybe even protect your hand.

      Best Regards.
