      $6.74
      MP2:
      $4.76


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, A.
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.25, BU calls $0.25, Hero???

      CO= 7/4 of 112 and BU = 19/14 of 38

      fold to CO's tight range?
      if CO folded and BU raised, i would reraise him?

      just felt i was already behind in this situation. easiest thing to do is fold.
      would like to know your thoughts on what the best move would be

      Hey qxtwo,

      Even though stats are still quite unreliable after 112 hands, I would go for the safer option and fold AQ here because I don't think he is loose enough to 3-bet AQ there profitably.

      On the other hand if BU was the openraiser then you have an easy 3-bet with AQ.

      Best regards,

      Plz explain:

      The basic chart does not make a distingtion between if the first raiser raised an unopened pot or limpers. Should we?

      There's no need to distinguish between openraised pots and the ones with limpers infront. You just have to look at the openraiser. However, in the posted hand the openraiser was too tight to 3-bet him.
