      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $47.50
      CO:
      $51.60
      BU:
      $50.00
      SB:
      $72.00
      BB:
      $21.10
      MP2(Hero):
      $53.30


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, Q.
      Hero raises to $2.00, MP3 calls $2.00, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) 5, Q, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, MP3 raises to $7.00, Hero raises to $14.00, MP3 raises to $38.50(All-In), Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $28.75.

      MP3: 25.96/10.58/3.33/5.00/0.00/104 (VP/PR/AF/WT/W$/Hands)

      I was totally confused after quite smallish raise on the flop. Folding here is in my opinion impossible, but c/calling it till the SD can be too expensive. That's why I decided to 3-bet him, but he did an insta shove.

      Good fold or ship it ?

      I hate these minraises.

      Are calling to re-evaluate later streets and folding really not options? I guess reads would be useful here lol.

      yes that small reraise sux (mini raise would be 11 :f_p: )

      calling his raise and re-evaluate on turn is fine for me, pot isnt too big (18.75), so u can even c/c on a blank turn, but 3bet/shove is better imo, that are only two hands that beats u { 44 , 55 } and a lof of fd, combo draws and even maybe a worst Q (like KQ QJ)

      +1
      I´d likely 3-bet flop and go broke.
      He can shove there a lot of draws
