      Hello,

      I think I let this hand get to me, I wanted to take it pre flop tbh because OOP kinda sucks even with AQ. I think my main mistake for this hand was checking the flop, however I did this because I had nothing and the villain called my big 3bet. Was this a mistake? I mean after looking at the hand I feel the villain should not have called my 3bet maybe, BUT it was bad play for me to check and then call his almost pot sized bet.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $1.85
      BB:
      $1.85
      MP1:
      $2.00
      MP2:
      $4.65
      MP3:
      $2.20
      CO:
      $6.75
      BU:
      $2.72


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, Q.
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, BU raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.81, 3 folds, BU calls $0.61.

      Flop: ($1.77) 8, 3, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.69, Hero calls $1.04.

      Turn: ($4.5) 7 (2 players)


      River: ($4.5) Q (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.5.

      So, I guess I wanted to know what you guys thought about cbetting in this instance? Calling I think it's safe to say was bad play

      Gracias! :spade:

      I think the 3 bet OOP is great! But I think we have to C/F the flop. What do we actually beat? We can't call this all in cause we aren't ahead of 50% of villians range, so snap fold tbh.

      Yes agreed - I think to conclude c/f on flop is best play!

      We have $1 left. So we risk $1 to win $1.85 hence we need him to fold 1/(2.85) = around 36% of the time.

      now since we have equity (2 overs), this is a ++++++Ev shove rather than a check/fold (which has an EV of 0 OR -$0.81 [your 3bet])

      So I would just shove Flop as a cbet

      Best regards,
      Gerv
