      I think it is played good. I don´t want to play oop. I could consider 4bet 18$ and if he pushes, then fold. But if he could do that with AQ, AK, then it is played wrong. Fold is too weak, so I guess, push is fine . Ofcourse it all depends on the opponent, if he is lag, I would push, against tag I would call.

      I don´t like it without history and reads.
      I prefer calling an reevaluate flop.

      This is absolut unpossible. Your odds are soooo good, that you can never fold this hand.

      the way i see it (im mostly posting to correct my wrong views, so pls correct me if im wrong)

      if u go all in there is a good chance u get called by better pairs,

      even AK AQ will give you trouble if an overcard comes up on the board.

      so i would call here and then break my head on how to deal with the Q that shows up on the flop :tongue:

      call pre and reevaluate on the flop . without reads and stats its hard to tell smth about the preflop action .

      Hi Zeffke!

      Without reads I would call his raise and bet 3/4 potsize on this flop to look what you are up against. If he calls or raises your bet you are done with the hand.

      Good luck at the tables!
