      The converted hand:

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      MP3 = ($2.16)
      CO = ($4.12)
      BU (Hero) = ($4.00)
      SB = ($3.90)
      BB = ($1.39)
      MP1 = ($1.72)
      MP2 = ($7.37)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, SB folds, BB raises to $0.28, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.58) 7, 6, K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.42, BB calls $0.42.

      Turn: ($1.42) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.42) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.48, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.42.

      His weak three bet from BB made me call. When he checked I tried a c-bet which he called. I was done with the hand after that.

      Was my call pre-flop wrong? I know AQ can be easily overplayed but the price to see a flop was relatively small. My bet on the flop may have been wrong too especially considering his stack size?

      Hello 0744379,

      Welcome to the NL 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: Well, against his stack I don't like that much the Call. Most likely I'd just ship it or fold the hand. They usually are capable of playing this way even KK+ hands and trap you.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, I don't like that much the Bet and you ain't CBetting while you didn't have the initiative. I'd rather just Check it, I mean what hands do you make to fold? Only those who you win anyways with Ace high. Check it behind, he ain't folding any PP/pair here anyways.

      Best Regards.
