      CO: $8.72 (87.2 bb)
      BTN: $10.62 (106.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $16.33 (163.3 bb) 16/15/1.5/5.3/22/66
      BB: $16.56 (165.6 bb) 25/12/2.2/0.0/25/95

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8 T
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) J 5 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.40) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.20, Hero calls $1.20

      I know with 100 bb stacks I should raise turn and try to get it in to protect against other higher flush draws but being 150+bb deep should I be playing for pot control or protection?

      River: ($4.80) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $3.40, Hero calls $3.40

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Nah, not really. We can't really raise the turn cause we will rarely even get called from a lot worse hands and might isolate vs strong flushes.

      Best Regards.
