      This was a bad night at the office.

      I think pre-flop I should have raised more. I was down and hoping they didn't fold -- fishy I know

      On the flop I'm worried about draws, but maybe shouldn't have gone bust?

      Its standard situation overpair in 3bet pot you cant get away from it unless you know your opponent is total nit and will only raise with nuts so pretty standard in my opinion.

      Hello Phildini,

      Preflop: Definitely have to raise it bigger here ~$0,60 even. Might even do higher.
      Postflop: Most likely made a small mistake raising it preflop that smallish, you just gave even good odds for set mining or Call with any crap. Now is the question if he like ever would play AQ/KQ this way? I rarely doubt that he would play it so aggressively. Most of the 3bet calling range did hit like JJ/QQ, so practically what hands do we beat? I'd rather be inclined even to bet a bit smaller ~$0,80 and then reevaluate the actions but most likely even consider Bet/Folding since I don't really see many hands what we beat unless we know the opponent better.

      Best regards.
