      Pre Flop: ($1.00) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:club:

      UTG calls $0.25, UTG+1 raises to $1.90, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $1.65, UTG calls $1.65

      Flop: ($6.45, 3 players) 2:diamond: 9:spade: 8:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks

      Turn: ($6.45, 3 players) 5:spade:
      Hero bets $4.00, fold, UTG+1 calls $4.00

      Hero bets $8.00, UTG+1 calls $8.00

      I usually 3bet preflop even OOP, but the insane size of his pfr made me just call and then play it cautiously afterwards. Ok way to play it?

      - yes. If you don´t know what that huge raise means then playing it safe is ok

      This was another weird hand where I completely failed to put the villain on a hand. Pre-flop it screamed AA. On the turn I figured he might have AK with the A :spade: or a pair like TT. The river means I might not get value from AK but I decide to bet/fold it again and he calls with A :spade: J :heart: which was really surprising.

      fishes take sometimes weird lines.
      Thatś why I´d prefer to get first information, but playing abc game and playing there for stacks with QQ is also fine
