      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BB with 5 :diamond: A :heart:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.20, 2 folds, SB calls $0.10, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.60) 6 :spade: J :club: A :spade: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.45, Hero raises to $0.97, MP folds, SB calls $0.52

      Turn: ($2.54) 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.54) K :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      my options on the flop are or to call or to raise;

      1.Call- I pot control with tp weak kiker, but there are possible flush draws from witch i want to protect.

      2.Raise- I like raise more because SB has wts 32, I assume he can donk here Jx, flush draws, 88,99 and 66,Ax; by raising we kick out of the pot MP, and stay in possition with SB, and gain initiative in possition, further we can decide to bet for value or to pot control with Top Pair weak kicker

      How to you think guys, what is the best play on the flop ???

      Hi Staselu,

      SB being a nittier fishy reg player will have a tigther range for donking that flop into 2 people.

      I doubt that someone like him donk/calls Jx or many draws. And we only beat A4/A3/A2 and we have a fish behind us.

      So with that being said I think that folding may be the better play, followed by a thin raise given we are 3 way.
