      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: £60.07
      BB: £13.50
      UTG: £45.46
      Hero (CO): £66.11
      BTN: £54.78 VP:24/PR:20/3B:10/Flop CBet;73/Turn CBet:70

      SB posts SB £0.25, BB posts BB £0.50

      Pre Flop: (£0.75) Hero has Q:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to £1.50, BTN raises to £4.50, fold, fold, Hero calls £3.00

      Flop: (£9.75, 2 players) T:spade: 8:diamond: 3:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets £6.00, Hero calls £6.00

      Turn: (£21.75, 2 players) 7:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets £11.50, Hero raises to £55.61, fold

      I think there is no need to 4B shove there since he is 3B 10% I think it is better to call 3B pre.
      Then since he is barreling a lot (CBet flop and Turn) I go for C/C flop and C/R turn. I think that is the best line to get max value.

      What if the turn is an A or K?

      I'm not too sure if C/R is the best line on the turn. Personally I would prefer C/C and re-evaluate river.

      Admittedly, the board does get a bit drawy, but I don't see him on draws here too often. He does sometimes have AA/KK here, maybe TT, so you should avoid narrowing down his range to value hands.

      If he's not capable of firing 3-barrels, I doubt it makes a big difference, but if he is indeed capable of betting ATs, JJ, AK again here, there is a lot of value in C/C turn and river.

      I am raising for value/protection on the turn. I could raise to 35 but considering stack/pot sizes I just shove.

      He can have 9T,98,AT,JJ and any flush draw since he CBet flop and Turn often he would do it here with his back door on flop and then flush draw on turn.

      if you ever would likely also to c/r flop as bluff I think you can also do that with QQ, but c/c flop and c/rai is also fine play.
      If K would come to the turn, then your equity against 10% is over 50% so you should still c/c

      10% 47.53% 1,881 44

      Against As it drops to 40%, so if you want then you can fold your QQ
