      Again a stupid mistake from me :( should I just fold in such situation?

      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , K:spade:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0,20, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0,80, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($1,75) 7:spade: , 9:spade: , Q:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $1,40, MP1 raises to $2,80, Hero raises to $2,65 (All-In), MP1 gets uncalled bet back..

      Turn: ($7,05) 6:heart:
      River: ($7,05) 8:heart:

      Final Pot: $7,05

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with king kicker (Ah Ks)
      MP1 shows a pair of queens (Qd Kc)

      MP1 wins with a pair of queens (Qd Kc)

      Preflop I would raise to $0.60 (3x raise size). As played I'd make a 2/3potsized cbet and push after a raise. You have 2 overcards and a flush draw, so I'd go broke with that here.

      I don't think it's missplayed. I mean, the preflop raise is just fine and on the flop you have strong draw, but regardless: cbet is mandatory.

      You also need about 18% equity to call his reraise here and you get more than 28% even if you're against made flush! Against Ahigh flush you're of course doomed, but against Ahigh flush draw with no pair you surely have more than 30% equity. Worse if it's paired...but hey, how many paired A-high flush draws are out there? :) I think it was played correctly.

      The only thing you have to remember is to note him out. Minraise and than such an action is something you need to be aware in future.

      Okey, I will try to do that on the next time and try to concentrate on the equity. Thanks again.
