      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) T J 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      Turn: ($3.10) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.50, Hero raises to $5.47, BB raises to $18.65 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results:
      $14.04 pot ($0.77 rake)
      Final Board: T J 3 7
      BB mucked and won $13.27 ($6.30 net)
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$6.97 net)

      VPIP: 36, PFR: 21, 3B: 13, AF: 4,3, Hands: 61

      Not sure why I didn't raise the flop, maybe because I believed that usually players who donk like this are not inclined to fold. (especially with smaller stacks)

      On the Turn I transform my fairly good drawing hand in a complete bluff with a IMHO terribad raise, as my equity is also much lower on turn. And he also bet small damit what was I thinking here?!

      Hi.

      Call flop and call turn. Dont like raising and i think AQ two overs and gutshot is better. You can always call turn and bluff river. I would play my flushes in the same way.

      Thanks.

      I like this a lot.

      Question: better than what? his hand? on flop or turn?

      Bluff river, only if he checks?

      AQ is better than his semi-bluffs, since we have AQ high. Our outs are also cleaner, as compared to a hand like 98 which only makes a low end open ender.

      If he bets river, we are probably folding unless he bets some weak amount under half pot, then we have the option of bluff raising over his weak bet to rep the flush. We have the Ace club blocker after all, which prevents him from having nut flushes in his range.

      Thanks.
