      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (SB): $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $59.11 (118.2 bb)
      MP: $54.85 (109.7 bb)
      CO: $72.14 (144.3 bb)
      BTN: $11.90 (23.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3) T 6 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BB raises to $5.25, Hero calls $3.25

      Turn: ($13.50) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $8.25, Hero calls $8.25

      River: ($30) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Anon table.

      BB looked like an aggro reg on small sample.

      How to react to flop raise? He could raise me with a wide range on this board (sets/FDs/54s/87s/98s/X:hX/etc.)... Just 3bet him on the flop, as I have no showdown value? I'd be more happy to play 3bet/broke with A:cX... But chances are slim for him anyway to dominate me with a draw...
      Turn/river played itself I guess.

      Flop: 3betting is not an option. I may 3bet and get it in with Ace high Flush draw, esp if I expect him to raise flop for thin value (KT QT etc) or with worse flush draws and stack off.

      With this hand, i think it's too strong to fold and too weak to call. So I call especially when the raise is not too large. With an 8 high flush draw I probably just fold to the raise.

      Turn: standard call again. he could easily rep this card and we can have the best hand.

      River: Nothing to say here. If he jams, just decide on how often he 3barrels and if he does it often enough you would be committed and would probably have to call.
