      BB: $54.87 (109.7 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $52.70 (105.4 bb)
      SB: $20 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K Q
      Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($8.25) 9 7 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $5.50, Hero raises to $13.25, BB raises to $50.87 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Villain has 85% cb 3bp and a 15% 3b BB vs BTN

      I saw this as a profitable raise because he should fold a lot of his range, 3/4 of the suited junk and offsuit broadways.

      His fold cb to raise is kind of high. I don't mind making such a play occasionally, but i usually prefer to have some backdoor flush draw (Kd or Qd here). This not only gives us more fold equity, but also reduces the likelihood of villain having a flush draw which can reshove over our flop raise.
