      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,50, CO folds, BU raises to $1,45, Hero calls $1,30, BB folds, MP3 calls $0,95.

      I was sure that BU was isolating the 76/34 player with a wide range.
      Therefore i called even OOP since it's unlikely that i'm dominated + i keep the fish in.
      Should i 3B and risk that the fish folds and i isolate myself against strong BU range?

      Flop: ($4,60) A:club: , 9:heart: , 2:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2,05, BU folds, Hero calls $2,05.

      Turn: ($8,70) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Should have bet the Turn since cbet looked weak and if BU has Air i won't get more money on river.

      River: ($8,70) 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $8,70

      I think call of is better with AQs. With AJo or AT I might 4-bet bluff there and fold to shove, with AK I´d likely 4-bet/call, but with AQs you´re also fine playing postflop.
      I´d just c/r flop to 5$, bet turn and shove river. If he has there Ax hand, you would stack him and I doubt he would suddenly start bluffing if you seem weak to him.
