      CO: $1.79 (89.5 bb)
      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.22 (61 bb) 31/2 /fld cbet 78/131 hands
      BB: $2.51 (125.5 bb) 85/48/fld cbet 100/hnads 48
      Hero (UTG): $2.14 (107 bb)
      MP: $1.95 (97.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:club: A:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.07, 3 folds, SB calls $0.06, BB calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.21) K:diamond: Q:heart: 9:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.18, Hero raises to $0.53, 2 folds

      here i am not so sure for the flop raise . The board its not the best a lot of 2 pair str8 combos . But the BB its really big fish he might easily has KJ Qj type hands so i raise him on the flop to protect . ( my plan was to raise call against the SB and maybe fold against the BB ) what u think ? It is a mistake my thought to raise the BB and then fold to a shove ?

      Preflop is fine of course.

      I don't mind raising the flop here against a huge aggro fish. He is likely to call us with a lot of pair + draw hands or some TP so I think raising for value here is fine.
      If he shoves I think folding will be fine. His line looks strong and usually we will be behind, but that does not mean that raising here for value is bad.
