      6 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BU calls $1.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $6.50, CO calls $5.00, BU raises to $12.50, Hero calls $6.00, CO folds.

      Flop: ($31.75) T, Q, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $15.00, BU raises to $36.49, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $46.75.

      Villain has stats of 15/3.When he min raises my squeeze i'm pretty sure he was trying to trap the original raiser with a monster.I called hoping to hit a set and missed but i still c bet the flop for some reason.Should I just check fold here.

      easy fold

      c-bet is debatable, i would prefer it if you block bet it instead with only $9.50 or something odd like this to make it look like you are trying to lure a reraise when in fact you want a free card OR a reraise so that you can fold.

      it is tricky but it sometimes works..

      mind you, if he flats it with AK and J comes you are so screwed.

      so.. block bet him on the flop and if he reraises you fold having not lost so much.

      I think call pf is ok, but lead out and then fold to shove seems terrible.
      Either bet out and call shove by putting him AK or random hands that you beat or c/f flop.
