      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:heart: , Q:diamond:
      UTG+1 calls $0,04, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0,04, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,24, 3 folds, UTG+1 calls $0,20, MP1 calls $0,20.

      Flop: ($0,78) 2:club: , 6:spade: , T:club: (3 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0,30, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, UTG+1 folds.

      Final Pot: $2,08

      This wasn't really a tough spot in my opinion, but I still got a question: Would you call an AI if he comes oer the top?


      Best regards,

      with the flush draw out there, absolutely. The players are so weak on that level i think you can always make a profitable call with overpair in that spot. Could consider laying it down if three suited connectors come out. There are few situations that would make me fold that, at that level and those stacks.

      Hi Mugge88!

      I would call an all-in because he could also push with a flush draw or top pair. Concerning the line you played: I would raise more on the flop (~1.30) to protect my hand against flush draws and get the maximum value from them.

      Good luck at the tables!
