      Hero (UTG): $28.43
      CO: $29.27 27/16/1,7 VP/PF/AF 72 hands
      BTN: $43.07
      SB: $45.65
      BB: $19.69

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with Q :heart: A :club:
      Hero raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) T :heart: 9 :heart: A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.18, CO raises to $3.25, Hero ?

      The cutoff is probably a reg.
      The problems on this flop as I see them:

      1) There are many possible draws.
      2) I'm getting raised, but V. might know that my Range has hit that board pretty hard, which makes his raise stronger.
      3) If I call, how do I continue in the hand when
      a) another heart comes?
      b) any broadway comes?
      c) an 8 comes?
      d) he keeps barreling?
      4) If I 3b/call, am I ever far enough ahead?
      5) A fold is pretty weak.

      What would be the best way to continue in the hand?

      Hey,

      This is a snap fold for me.. You have no idea about how he plays, I'd usually give him loads of credit plus your hand is unplayable. There's no good turn card for you vs his range because it won't be draw heavy enough and when it is, a heart is not good either.

      In order to play back at villain here he'd need to be very aggressive with raises in which case I don't like cbetting AQ here, I prefer having more check/calling hands that can call down vs aggro guy.
