      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is UTG with 4 :club: 4 :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, CO calls $0.15, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.37) 9 :heart: T :club: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, CO raises to $0.65, Hero raises to $1.65, CO folds

      F: Think my 3-bet scares off a lot of Tx hands.

      Better approach:
      • Bet/call the flop then donk value-bet the turn.

      this flop is pretty connected and when he raises this flop when you are in UTG i think he has a strong hand which is willing to continue so i think we can go for value and raise it small like what you did and allow him to re raise us with draws, pairs and overpairs, 2pair.

      if you think hes bluffing i dont mind calling and then check/raising the turn if you think hes capable of pulling alot of bets on the turn. if you are going to donk the turn i think we might as well put in a small raise here since hes more likely to go broke with a draw on the flop than the turn.

      unfortunately he was just trying his luck and we weren't getting anything.
