      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , K:club:

      Flop: ($0.47 - 9.40 bb) J:diamond: , 8:club: , 7:club: (2 Players)
      MP2 bets $0.35, Hero ?




      villain is 29/26 over 36 hands.

      (disregard pls the fact that I did not 3bet pre)
      what would you do on this flop ? having some trouble playing spots like these.

      If I call here and a club hits it can kill the action and I may not get value from the villain
      if i raise, and he calls, what do I do on different turns ?

      Hey bmfbpi,

      Flatting AKs should be your standard line vs UTG open at these stakes.

      I would just flat the flop. Your hand is too strong to bluff raise imo, but a little too weak to raise for pure value.

      I don't think a club "killing your action" is a huge issue, since it's not like you necessarily have the best hand or anything if villain calls a raise. You will always have a decent amount of equity though.
