      I know I played this badly. Just looking for some advice. Didn't want to scare anyone away. What should I have done to guarantee maximum value?

      SB:
      $1.6
      Hero:
      $5
      CO:
      $2.41

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      SB wins with three-of-a-kind, queens (Qd Js)

      Hi,

      You can considered raising more pf, but I think it is standard to 4-bet small against midstacks with aces.

      Postflop you can´t fold and calling is basically the same as shoving so I´m fine with shove. CO would likely fold anyway his AK type hand against shove and call.

      In the end standard hand and you got your money in being 83% favorite.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Don't min-raise like that! At the moment with your raise you practically gave CO correct odds for set-mining. For that reason just make a normal raise or even if you want to make a smaller raise then ~$1 which will force CO to do still mistakes.

      But ye well as played you can as well just Call postflop, CO doesn't have much left anyways. If he has a draw he ain't gonna fold it anyways, either you shove or Call. With calling you might drag along some weaker pairs/PPs.

      Best Regards.
