      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 9:heart: 9:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, CO raises to 10 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls 7 BB

      Flop: ($2.15, 2 players) K:diamond: 9:diamond: 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO bets 14 BB, Hero raises to 31.2 BB, CO calls 17.2 BB

      Hero bets 39.9 BB, CO raises to 71.4 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 31.5 BB

      River: ($22.67, 2 players) 6:heart:

      I call 3bet because he 3bets only 5%, and has a bit more than 10$, is it ok?
      Once I hit, on dangerous board, should I raise larger flop? I wanted it also to look as I have flush draw, so that he goes all in first. On turn I dont go all in because I want also QQ to call me if he thinks that I bluff. Is it ok, or push turn myself?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I don't like the call to 3-bet OOP here. We don't get the odds to setmine (20 rule).

      Postflop: I would definitely raise larger on the flop for both value and protection and to make the turn bet smaller (as of now it's closer to a PSB which brings more FE which we don't want).

      So I'd raise at least 38 BB or so and then go all in.

      As played it's rare that villain has QQ and we should worry about maximizing value versus AK and AA which are a much larger part of his bet/calling range on the flop. So I'd shove.
