      The villain is playing with stats 20/17/13 with 80% flop cbet. He is a generally aggresive player.

      On Game No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (5 handed) - On Game Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      SB ($8.58)
      BB ($3.43)
      UTG ($4.09)
      MP ($4.06)
      Hero (Button) ($4.08)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q, J
      1 fold, MP bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) 5, J, 6 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.20, Hero raises $0.60

      Total pot: $0.70

      Is raising or calling the best line here and why?

      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: We do have a strong hand here but we don't really need the FE. Can you expect him to raise (3-bet) many worse hands? Or can you expect him to call many worse?

      I prefer calling here because we give him the chance to continue bluffing, even on a club and we maximize our playability.

      If for example the flop was Td5c6c I would like our raise better because then we only have Q high w/ draw so if he bet/folds Ax, Kx, pairs he folded a better hand.
