      Dealt to Hero A:club: A:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.06, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.06, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      FLOP ($0.24) 7:club: 5:club: 7:heart:

      SB checks, BB bets $0.18, Hero raises to $0.44, UTG+2 folds, SB calls $0.44, BB raises to $1, Hero ???

      Raise for value on flop. They are on a wide range because of cheap price. I see getting value from club draws, straight draws, overcards, overpairs, and would have no problem going all in vs the SB alone, but when the BB shows interest I feel the risk of one having cards to leave me far behind is too great, and I should lay down.

      Do you see me getting value from draws and other weaker hands here?

      Hi Painterman,

      Preflop: looks fine but UTG we should raise bigger, at least 4x if not more (considering how many fish we have behind us).

      Flop: The initial raise is fine and since BB seems a nit I can't expect him to raise us with too much junk (we block NFD and backdoor NFD). So, unless you have any reason to believe that he can bet/raise 88-JJ type hands I would be inclined to fold.
