      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, A.
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.9) 5, A, J (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.69, MP3 raises to $1.90, SB folds, Hero calls $1.21.

      Turn: ($4.7) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.10, MP3 raises to $7.80, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.8.

      I called AQ preflop not according to the SHC; i made mistake.
      Postflop i matched the board and decided to play aggressively.
      However my opponent pushed AI and i folded. Right or wrong?
      Remark: This hand was posted as a task of the BSS beginner course.

      Hello DONGSIM,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Guess you could even consider squeezing here. Being OOP and playing AQo in multiway pot ain't the greatest hand. As we see postflop you even trying to overplay your TP.

      As played
      Postflop: Even if you donk what hand do you expect to beat if he raises you? The same goes for turn? Why do you donk? Just doesn't make sense. :( Most likely I would rather Check it on flop and reevaluate further actions or even if I am donking then Donk/Fold since I don't expect the opponent to raise with a lot worse hands.

      Best regards.
