      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 4:spade: A:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.04, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.04, fold, BB calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.13, 3 players) Q:heart: A:diamond: 3:club:
      BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.25, fold, fold

      Hero wins $0.24

      question about flop play. I've reraised here hoping to take it down on the flop because our hand isn't super strong and villain is cbet bluffing here often. Is this ok or is calling way better?

      no stats on villain, only 2 hands played.

      discussed this with zuke on skype/mikogo...
      i had said calling might be better because we have some showdown value and raising here just turns our hand into a bluff. but on the other hand, playing the next few streets is going to suck, so i'm not sure.

      Our hand here is too weak to raise and too strong to fold. So this is a very standard call.
