      UTG: $6.20 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 7, 3B: 9, AF: 5,5, Hands: 44
      MP: $4.39 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 17
      CO: $10.40 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 21, 3B: 11, AF: 0,8, Hands: 75
      Hero (BTN): $10.00 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 47140
      SB: $10.52 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 29, 3B: 11, AF: 1,5, Hands: 49
      BB: $10.25 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 2,0, Hands: 82

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :heart: 2 :heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 1 fold, BB raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.05) A :club: 5 :spade: 2 :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.60, Hero raises to $2.20, BB folds

      Preflop should have made it 3x this time with the loose SB, but on the flop my play should be fine, since I have to protect from FDs and also get value from Ax.

      What to do if villain raises again on the flop, though? I would probably still go broke.

      Hi,

      BB 3-bet is likely that small that you can call being ip. Raising flop seems fine, although I would not really make it 2.2$. Making it 1.7-18$ give you enough protection against draws and Ax hands. Also if he has there KK-TT then he would very likely b/f anyway- so sometimes mixing it up and just calling should also be fine

      best regards,

      Is it really sufficient against possible FDs? Or do you think that villains range is not likely to consist of too many SCs or suited broadways or something?

      Also: If I raise on the flop for value then I have to go broke here as well, right? At least I would be very happy to.

      If villain is raising suited connectors, then he misses this flop 3/4 times and only continues with clubs- so I would not really worry too much about flushdraws- most likely he has there KK-TT or AJ-AK or random air and against that range yo´re really 80%-90% favorite, so you don´t really raise that big your two pair hands.

      best regards,
