      Hero:
      $10,15
      MP2:

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , Q:club:
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0,30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2,00, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,70

      Usually I fold AQs to UTG and early middle raisers, but I think this guy is too loose to fold here, and since I'm out of position I decided to raise him 4x his raise (my raise size is wrong because I thought he raised $0.50 :f_confused: ). Is OK or coldcalling/folding would be better?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Your raise size is way too big. :f_p: And likely cold-calling should be doable but it will be hard to play against such opponents postflop, if you feel like you can overplay him then go for it but ain't wrong if you just fold it for the given reason that you don't want to 3bet and face a 4bet or either Call and be OOP. But 3betting is totally fine against such an opponent.

      Best regards.
