      BTN: $34.17 (68.3 bb)
      SB: $58.69 (117.4 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $64.99 (130 bb)
      MP: $76.73 (153.5 bb)
      CO: $30.56 (61.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A Q
      Hero raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, 4 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) K A 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, MP raises to $7, Hero calls $4.50

      Turn: ($17.75) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $13.31, Hero calls $13.31

      River: ($44.37) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $22.18, Hero calls $22.18

      Villain seemed like LAG or maniac and had around 16% 3bet overall , probably tighter in MPvsUTG but he's most likely 3betting KK+,AK imo so on the flop he really doesnt rep that much - hes probably calling all 55 combos pre cause we are deeper but im not sure if hed use such sizing on the flop if he had set and the rest of his raising range are really just gutshots[QT.QJ] and flush draws[76s-QJs.T8s-QTs], maybe A5s - so i guess if i put him on such range the calldown makes sense , turn isnt the best card but still

      i dont think MP is raising as a bluff that often and if he is he would have either given up on the turn, or improved on the turn and decided to barrel.

      so if we have reason to believe hes on a draw we can call the flop raise, and after that fold the turn to further aggression since it improved his range and our hand is weak on this board, there are many 2pairs and draws. or if we have reason to believe that we are going to face further aggression we might want to fold to the flop raise too.
