      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, A.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, 4 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, MP2 calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.45) J, Q, T (2 players)
      Hero raises to $3.15, MP2 calls $3.15.

      Turn: ($8.75) A (2 players)


      River: ($8.75) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $8.75.

      Results follow:

      MP2 shows a straight, ace high(Ah Kh).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(Qs As).

      MP2 wins with a straight, ace high(Ah Kh).

      Villain : 28/16 raise 1st 31%(80% MP 5 hands) 30 hands; fold to 3bet -

      First of all I think his position is ok for a 3bet and I thought it's quite likely for him to fold. He didn't, and the flop came ugly, is it ok to go allin on this flop considering that most hands who would call a 3bet here improved by a lot (TT,JJ,QQ?,AK)? In mss one normally goes allin with TPTK in a 3bet pot but I'm not sure here. What should I do?

      Hey BadeaCelRau,

      On the flop you don't have to push directly because you still have quite some money in your stack. I would just c-bet 1.50$ and fold to a raise. If he calls flop then you can go all-in on the turn.

      Best regards,
