      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $2.45 (122.5 bb)
      MP: $4.87 (243.5 bb)
      CO: $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      BTN: $7.96 (398 bb)
      SB: $3.32 (166 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.06, MP calls $0.06, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.24) 9 7 3 (4 players)
      SB bets $0.16, BB calls $0.16, Hero raises to $1, MP folds, SB calls $0.84, BB folds

      I am still baffled at my flop raise here. Not even sure if calling was the right thing here as every cell screams to me that someone is bound to have a set here.

      Turn: ($2.40) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.39 and is all-in, SB calls $1.39

      River: ($5.18) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $5.18 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: 9 7 3 Q 5
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$2.45 net)
      SB showed 9 9 and won $5 ($2.55 net)

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I like raising the flop here, but I think you made your raise kind of big. I'd just make it $0.65-$0.7 here.

      As played, shoving turn is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
