      This was a strange hand. The A on the flop was a scare card for me, but the others were passive too. So I got more active, especially when seeing the Q. How would you play this hand?

      ship pre, so much dead money and at this limit super rare that someone is flatting 3b w/ AA

      as played hand is probably standard

      Hello feketepok,

      Preflop: I don't understand why you don't want to 4bet. You are just giving great odds for BU to make the Call, I'd just raise it up here and likely play for stacks against UTG+2.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, it's hard to lay down there anyways our set for the given odds as you bet that big.

      Best regards.

      I put both opponents on a QQ+, AK range, and thought I would isolate myself against KK or AA with a 4-bet.
      In the end it turned out UTG had AA, while BTN had KT :) . So the lucky BTN took the pot... :)
