      hi
      dont call this hand preflop . either raise it or fold it .
      as played bet more on the flop , close to potsize .
      dont slowplay here just bet . it is very likely you get called again by draws by draws that wont call another river bet if they dont hit but if they hit you will have a biger pot and extract more value

      Please explain why its better to raise QTo on the BU, is it to thin the competition? Isnt it better to call and see a cheap flop? Are we looking for a straight? What flop makes a difference between raising or calling preflop?

      Yeah the SHC says I should fold it. At the time I was playing a little looser because my postflop game is weak and I need the practice.
