      BB: $25.70 (51.4 bb)
      UTG: $79.28 (158.6 bb)
      MP: $38.70 (77.4 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $27.39 (54.8 bb)
      Hero (SB): $47.40 (94.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BTN folds, Hero raises to $5, BB folds, CO calls $3.50

      Flop: ($10.50) Q A 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.87, CO raises to $16


      villain (300 hands)
      opens 40% of CO folds 80% of C) to 3b (4/5)


      Hmm, my cb is quite big actually, would a 50-60% be more desirable?

      In this specific hand, i think his range has many bluffs so I think that folding is not a good idea.

      What do you think his range would be there?

      Also in the case you are villain and you have two pair, would you go for a raise on the flop?

      Hi,

      I'm not sure if his range consists of so many bluffs actually. This board hits your range pretty hard, so not sure if he really thinks it's a good idea t to bluff here. I guess we could call and reevaluate turn. Probably check/fold on most turn cards, but it depends on his sizing as well.

      Your cbet sizing seems OK, maybe slightly smaller is preferable, around 6$.

      ifs

      Thanks for the reply

      If we were in villain spot and we have two pair, should we ever go for a raise on the flop?

      ( assume we have no history )

      No I would generally just call. If he's really tight and we know he never folds AK, then I guess raising is fine, but usually calling is going to be better to extract more value from bluffs + weaker Ax hands.
