      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $10.44
      BTN: $4.77
      SB: $7.73
      Hero (BB): $4.93
      UTG: $12.80
      MP: $3.76

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has A:spade: K:club:

      fold, MP raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, fold, SB raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.75, MP calls $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Flop: ($3.20, 4 players) 8:spade: 6:spade: 4:spade:
      SB bets $6.93 and is all-in, Hero calls $4.13 and is all-in, fold, fold

      Turn: ($11.46, 2 players) A:diamond:

      River: ($11.46, 2 players) 3:diamond:

      SB shows Q:club: Q:spade: (One Pair, Queens) (PreFlop 56%, Flop 51%, Turn 5%)
      Hero shows A:spade: K:club: (One Pair, Aces) (PreFlop 44%, Flop 49%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins $10.90

      Openraiser is very loose, plays 70/35
      caller is fish 80/0
      And 3-betor is tag

      when tag 3-bets he has most likely QQ, JJ, AK mby AQ or AA,KK but I have AK so its unlikely but possible. And if he noticed that MP open raises very loose and CO calls allmost anything, his range could be even wider.

      So what to do here? Just push all in?
      I called, because I was putting him on QQ,JJ and decided to see flop and if I hit A or K was prepared to go all in.

      On flop he goes all in. Is call correct? Really looks like QQ or JJ in that case I have FD and 2 overs, and if he have AA or KK, I still have nut FD?

      Hello daun666,

      Preflop: Rather just fold againast SB 3bet. Ain't worth to Call there. We at the best are flipping and even if you hit you will never know where you stand with your hand.

      As played
      Postflop: You need ~37% equity here and going for a Call ain't a huge mistake for the reason:

      Board: 8:spade: 6:spade: 4:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    47.27%  46.77%   0.51% { AsKc }
      UTG+1  52.73%  52.22%   0.51% { JJ+ }

      As you see you are doing great with your overall equity against his range. But rather change your game-play preflop.

      Best regards.
