      Hero (BTN): $8.47 (169.4 bb)
      SB: $11.27 (225.4 bb)
      BB: $3.13 (62.6 bb)
      UTG: $5.92 (118.4 bb)
      MP: $1.93 (38.6 bb)
      CO: $5.02 (100.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB folds, BB calls $0.07

      Flop: ($0.26) 5 J K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, BB folds

      $0.56 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J K
      Hero mucked A K and won $0.54 ($0.27 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.27 net)

      Villain is unknown.

      I raise on flop to protect my hand. Won't mind getting the stacks in since villain has 60~ bb left and I have backdoor nut flush if I'm behind.

      On a sidenote, I was thinking if villain has 100bbs and he 3-bets me is it bad play to fold? Since I raised for value & protection, it's weak for me to fold when he 3-bets right?

      a backdoor flush should be just a bonus, it barely adds to your equity. would you still stack off without it?

      60bb or 100bb what you have to think about is if he is donk/3betting with draws or a worse pair.
      unknown 60bb probably rather bad player is more likely to do so, so it won't be a huge mistake if you ship it. vs 100bb i wouldn't be too excited so raise/fold it.
