      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5, 4.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1.05) 6, A, 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $1.10, BB raises to $2.10, Hero raises to $9.67, BB calls $4.74.

      Turn: ($17.56) T (2 players)

      River: ($17.56) 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $17.56.

      i thought that the min raise gave me really good odds so i called. flop gave me a OESD. but he bet so small. i thought that a raise was good to push him off the hand, yet he was very likely to hit the A. pushing all in on the flop i think was an overplay on my part. should i have called the small bet instead, or raised and called the re-raise for the OESD?

      raise seems fine idea, but I think 0.8$ is also fine amount
      You can also call, since if you get 3-bet you likely still have to go with your hand although then you´re at quite bad shape
      Generally I don´t expect to get 3-bet when player bets that small, so likely he has there AA very often, so maybe better is call his small 3-bet on the flop and fold to turn shove if you don´t improve
