      Hi guys!

      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: 243 BB (VPIP: 15.38, PFR: 7.69, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 14)
      CO: 41.5 BB (VPIP: 57.14, PFR: 57.14, 3Bet Preflop: 50.00, Hands: 14)
      Hero (BTN): 100.5 BB
      SB: 111.5 BB (VPIP: 23.08, PFR: 7.69, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 13)
      BB: 173 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 22.03, 3Bet Preflop: 10.53, Hands: 60)
      UTG: 100 BB (VPIP: 18.44, PFR: 12.77, 3Bet Preflop: 2.00, Hands: 148)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: A:spade:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, BB calls 8 BB, CO calls 6 BB

      Flop: (27.5 BB, 3 players) 3:spade: 9:club: Q:diamond:
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets 18 BB, BB calls 18 BB, fold

      Turn: (63.5 BB, 2 players) 4:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 31 BB, BB raises to 146 BB and is all-in, Hero ???

      I think bet flop is ok because we are in mw and we can charge draws or top pairs
      OTT, i don't don't know how the best option... bet small to fold to a raise ? check to pot control?

      Thanks for your opinion !!! :f_drink:

      Both calling and folding are decent options imo. Since this is NL2 and this kind of raises usually tend to be way too value heavy, I think folding would be slightly better. I would say villain is never doing this with weaker value hand and I don't see that many bluffs in his range either.

      I think those bet sizes need to be adjusted. This is a 3bet pot so standard cbet size would be half pot. Now you are multiway and the board is dry -> villains will fold way more often -> choose even smaller sizing.
      By sizing your bets like this you would have left about 40bb OTR in a pot of 125bb.

      Nothing good about calling here...
      Fold and move on. Villain cold called your 3b pre, board is not that connected and the turn push shows power.

      The sizing in this hand is most likely the issue. If you bet like half pot on the flop you don’t get committed yet with a half pot bet on the turn. Now you need to call only 42,5bb to win a pot of 148,5 (63,5+42,5*2) bb and then you need only 28,6% equity to win this hand and against a regular on NL2 you most likely against a set or something and is folding still the best option. If he’s capable to overplay Qx this would be an easy call. Reads are crucial in decisions like this I think.

      Yeah, that's right do not get to attached to your pocket aces, especially in post flop allin situations at the micros. As you mentioned above, villain is probably holding a set and you are dead.

      That for sure and easy to lose a big pot with post-flop if you can’t fold it.

      I think the hand was well-played, c-bet flop + turn and fold to raise. Only the flop bet sizing needs adjustment as others noted above. Checking back would give Villain a free card which might be good when you have the nuts but you want to value bet with AA.

      Not nice spot - Very hard to fold AA in 3bet pot for me. But villains are more honest in 3BP. Don't really see this as being a pure bluff given his stats. Is there anything you beat which he does this with - not sure that AQ or KK plays this way. If they do its a call, otherwise a fold
