      Hero (BTN): $6.05 (121 bb)
      SB: $4.47 (89.4 bb)
      BB: $5.72 (114.4 bb)
      UTG: $5.20 (104 bb)
      MP: $4.41 (88.2 bb)
      CO: $7.33 (146.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 4 4
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.50) Q T 4 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.40, CO calls $0.40, Hero raises to $2.08, 2 folds

      Not sure what I actually did here, was really not my best move...

      CO was on the tighter side, but SB seemed fishy, I want to play the hand against the fish, but this is such a low PP that I'm easily dominated by the TAG, and even if I hit I can't extract vaue from him, but maybe from the fish, I'm leaning towards folding this pre?

      When the fish(SB) leads out and CO calls, I think I have to bet as the board is quite drawy, I want to protect my hand, but I had no idea how to respond to CO's call I knew I didn't wanted him to continue, but also wanted to extract value, but I think I ended up making my raise WAY to big, confusing spot for me :(
      Would $ 1.50 been better?

      I think I generated to much FE, but also a nasty hand to play so I came to conclusion fold Preflop?
      As I see the flop I can't really play it slow as QT can improve and all the SD's + FD's obviously I can hit a FH but a FH with 2 T's or Q's aint good as villain would very likely be holding QT which then beats me >_<

      Preflop: standard call here even without the fish. You are at around 120 bb effective stack size which is great for playing sets.

      Flop: I think you should raise for sure, not only for value but also to build the pot and gain control of the hand. There is a fish and I doubt he ever folds QX here. Your raise size is way too large in my opinion, I would make it $1.60
