      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO = ($3.55)
      BU (Hero) = ($1.97)
      SB = ($2.30)
      BB = ($2.00)
      MP1 = ($3.79)
      MP2 = ($2.41)
      MP3 = ($2.63)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q :club: , A :heart: .
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.06, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.22, 3 folds, 2 folds, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.09.

      Good to 3bet here ? I know AQ ain´t that strong, but the guy was pretty active.

      What about the sizing ? Is the bet too high ?

      3bets are usually to 3 times the initial raise, so a bet to $0.18 would be better. If the guy is loose aggressive it's fine the 3bet the AQo because he'll still call with worse hands. It is, however, easier to just call AQo because if he 4bets you'll have to fold and it can be easy to make big mistakes in these spots.

      Hello acceleration123,

      As you saying that the guy was pretty active then it's a reason for 3betting the AQo. Without it I'd rather not do that so often.

      Best regards.
