      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , Q:heart:

      Final Pot: $20,16

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows double paire, aces and eights (As Kc)
      Hero shows (Ac Qh)

      MP2 wins with double paire, aces and eights (As Kc)

      MP2 has a high PFR and doesn't take position into account for his starting hands choices. The other player had a callraise percentage of 44! So I decided to go for a value-3bet. The problems cam when I got min4betted. I called because of the odds, and calldown my TP because I didn't really knew where I standed... Would it have been better just to fold to the 4bet?

      I think you can also shove pf to see all 5 cards although likely call pf is also fine
      I´d c/rai on the flop since I don´t really expect him to folding much and you have top pair so you can´t really fold your hand at any point

      Right about the c/r flop. I didn't even consider it, but it is quite obvious now! I chose the check/call line (with an AI on the river) not to get his KK/QQ or AJ to fold, but given the odds he can't really fold them to c/r
