      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, Q.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.20, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.18, BB calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.6) 6, 6, J (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG2 bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, BB folds.

      Turn: ($1.4) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.80, Hero raises to $4.38, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.2.

      I floated the flop because I put him on AK. He had faily tight stas Vpip of 10 and PFR of 6. I think I shouldnt have raised the turn because he would have only called with better JJ/QQ or AQ. On the moment however, I put him on AK on the flop and then on the turn I was hoping he maybe had AJ or something like TT.

      Hello CHARMANDER06,

      Flop: You can't put the opponent only one hand. You have to put him on a range. And do you expect the opponent to CBet into multiway pot wiith AK? Therefore I'd just fold it on flop.

      As played
      Turn: Don't like the Check/Raise either here. You are just making all worse hands to fold and very likely even better hands will continue. Rather just Check/Call it and maybe donk the river or something similar rather than Check/Raise it.

      Best regards.

      Thanks!

      When I looked at the hand after the session I realised that raising the turn was very bad. lol
