I reraised. Looking back on this hand, I think I could have gotten more value by just calling. You raise here?

if he is aggressive and u dont think he has trips then i just call most the time and let raise him if he bets turn..but i see nothing wrong with the way you played it also

I'm not worried about giving SB good odds, since there are so few two-pair or trips he can make which will beat us. It's only A5 or A2 we're potentially worried about--our call denies those hands proper odds anyway, which he shouldn't have in the first place.

A5 or A2 might be a bit more likely for +1 than for SB but still not very likely. With only one overcard to our Q and a sterile flop, this seems as good a spot as any for setting a bit of a trap with TPTK against an aggressive tall stack, if that's what he is. So a call isn't bad but neither is a raise.

You played it fine.. flat call, well you can do but I wouldn't generally.
