      MP: $4.97 (248.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.06 (103 bb)
      SB: $1.99 (99.5 bb)
      BB: $3.93 (196.5 bb)
      UTG: $5.06 (253 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.12, BB folds, Hero calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.26) 3 7 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.32, Hero folds

      The villain is 40/12/10.5/60

      I couldn't decide between a 4bet and a flat call. On one hand, I think I might get called by worse quite often here if I 4bet. On the other hand, I have position, and he only min-raises, so I have a profitable call as well.

      Flop fold to overbet is good?

      Hello,

      Preflop I prefer calling. 4betting is questionable here and we don't really want to face a shove.

      On the flop folding is good. No need to call here and get into those situations.

      Best,

      So we follow a simple preflop rule "Do not raise when you have a profitable call"?

      I made it up myself, so just checking whether the idea here is correct :)

      Well this rule looks good to me.
      I can add up however, that we can still raise here if we do expect to get called by a lot of worse hands (or stack off of course) but without too much information and considering the fact that villain looks rather passive I'd just call here.
