      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $27.60
      BB: $25.00
      Hero (UTG): $27.22
      CO: $20.10
      BTN: $30.01

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has 5:heart: 5:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.75, fold, fold, SB raises to $2.50, fold, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25, 2 players) 5:spade: 4:club: T:spade:
      SB bets $3.32, Hero raises to $8.80

      Villain= 28/22/2,6/44

      I want to build the pot before some scary card slows the action down.
      But it might be better to call Flop/ raise Turn since he's aggro and has high WTS= not folding overpairs on a :spade: Turn anyway.

      Hey 13BlackCats,

      Raising flop is definitely an option. However I think we are strong enough to call the flop and then evaluate the turn.

      If the turn comes a A/K he will likely bet the turn and a river as a bluff, if the turn comes a spade he may have turned a flush draw and even if it comes a spade his high WTSD shows us that he is very likely to continue in the hand.


      So think raising the flop is the only time when he probably really will fold a lot of hands as on the turn he could pick up draws if a 8/9/J/Q/K/A comes.
