      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :diamond: 6 :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.12, CO calls $0.12, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.07

      Flop: ($0.38) 9 :heart: 8 :spade: 5 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $0.25, CO folds, Hero?
      This bet sizing on this board looks extremely weak, that'd incline me to ch.r. I have GS+1 overcard, so not that bad.
      BUT
      villain looks very loose, so bluffing vs him might be futile... Why did I call preflop then?

      Hello,

      Calling preflop, unless we are Tom Dwan, is likely to put us in extremely tough spots postflop, so either 3bet or fold it, but considering that there are better hands we can 3bet with, I prefer folding.

      The flop is a check/fold here. We don't have any backdoor equity, also villain looks fishy so we could have very little FE here.

      Best,
      Plamen
