      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $2.00
      SB:
      $2.43
      BB:
      $1.92
      MP1:
      $2.23
      MP2:
      $1.42
      MP3:
      $2.00
      CO:
      $2.03


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, A.
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 raises to $0.08, CO folds, Hero calls $0.08, 3 folds, 2 folds, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.21) A, Q, 5 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.51) K (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.38, [COLOR=red]Hero ????

      Villain was playing at 9/3/inf over about 50 hands, so quite a tight preflop raiser. On the flop I felt I should just call his cbet for deception value, as I believed he would be willing to fire another barrel with a hand such as AK/JJ/KK. When the turn is the king am I beat here? A lot of the hands that I would be happy to put in his range are destroying me (AA-QQ, AK). Is it possible to find a call or raise here?

      Hello esuohdla,

      The problem is that his PFR is just so smallish which tells that his range is really towards to a very strong hand. I don't just see what hands we beat, maybe only few combos and to avoid making such hero Calls I'd rather be inclined to fold it on turn.

      Best regards.
