      Hero (SB): $2.00
      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $0.24
      UTG+1: $5.08
      MP: $2.03
      CO: $2.58
      BTN: $1.23

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

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

      fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, Hero calls $0.05, fold

      Flop: ($0.20, 3 players) K:heart: A:spade: 2:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.16, fold, Hero raises to $0.44, fold

      Was it okay to call this pf? Was the flop c/r okay as well?
      I didn't think reraising preflop from out of position was wise. We're going to weed out weaker hands and face tougher remaining hands while out of position.
      The flop c/r was to get more money in the pot, as I probably had the best hand. I think I need to raise for protection against facecard straight and two-pair draws, while also getting value for my hand.

      Hi,

      c/r generally is fine, but since it is 3-way pot I doubt any worse hands would call your c/r. For that reason I would rather lead myself all 3 streets to get called down worse Ax hands and protect against some gutshots+ get value from Kx.

      Best regards,
