      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:heart: A:spade:

      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.20, fold, Hero raises to $0.50, fold, BTN calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.03, 2 players) T:club: 8:club: 2:club:
      Hero bets $0.66, BTN raises to $3.54 and is all-in, Hero ?

      PF: Figured since we have over 200BB stacks that I must protect myself against his raise, wasn't sure how much to raise since he overbets to 10BB but 25BB seems ok?

      F: I think I've got to protect myself an get value and a check/raise would look stronger? I know this NL2 but shoving twice the pot had me thinking wtf, I guess he is shoving any overpairs and I thought it is unlikely he has a flush he'd probably call flop bet then ship turn so it's an easy call?

      Thanks

      You can't fold this hand with ~35% eq needed in 3-bet pot without super reads.
      TT beats you, KQ-KJ :club: , A X :club: but that's not so many.

      JJ-KK can also play this way with or without club and even a pure A/K :club: flushdraw.
      I guess if he is not a maniac you are about to coinflip.

      On K Q X monoboard or single-raised pot folding would be easier.

      Hi,

      raise bigger pre-flop. I would make it 0.65$, since if he is raising 20bb, he would likely not really folding to 3-bet. Postflop you don´t hit the best board, but nevertheless m not b/f, since seems like player is maniac who would shove with any flushdraw

      best regards,
