      SB bets $2.50, BB calls $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      River: ($17.25) T (3 players)
      SB bets $2.50, BB folds, Hero calls $2.50

      Results:
      $22.25 pot ($1.22 rake)
      Final Board: 3 T Q 9 T
      Hero showed J Q and won $21.03 ($12.78 net)
      SB showed 9 Q and lost (-$8.25 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$5.75 net)

      SB Stats: VPIP: 40, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 2,8, Hands: 102
      BB Stats: VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 2,5, Hands: 864

      I usually would raise on flop with FD+Pair, but in this case given the players I actually thought I could be ahead, and therefore decided to pot control and not scare away 2nd pairs and the like.
      Bad idea?

      Hi,

      Your raise pre is too big. Make it 3x or smaller on the button.

      As played I raise flop. You have top pair with a flushdraw, a very strong hand. We want to get in as much money as possibly versus a bare flushdraw or a weaker pair, so I definitely raise flop.

      As played turn and river seems standard.
