      Nice hand :f_cool:

      edit: if you have further questions, please ask! Whether to 3bet AQ or not from the blinds is quite a debated topic and it depends a lot on your opponents and table dynamics (if you guys have been too active, too passive, caught bluffing recently, etc.). Being it off suit I tend a bit to the squeeze as well since playability will be somewhat poor out of position in a multiway pot...

      Hello Sikac,

      Most likely against his stack I would rather prefer Check/Call in this case. It will also give him room for dumb moves as shove with a lot weaker hands, especially with those hands. :) We are committed anyways on flop and there ain't many draws.

      Best Regards.
