      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($2.10)
      BB ($4.43)
      UTG ($2.05) 20/13 over 80
      UTG+1 ($0.17)
      CO ($2.04)
      BTN ($0.72)

      Dealt to Hero Q:club: A:club:

      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, fold, fold, Hero?


      the BB was a very loose passive player. If I was the BB, I would definitely call and play heads-up against the UTG. Since there's a big chance that BB calls if I call, what's the best option here?

      Hello MancaMulas,

      AQs hand is still perfectly well played even in a multiway pot. So flatting there is totally fine, if BB comes along then even better for us and main idea of our hand is to play for strong hand and not just TP and overplay it.

      Best Regards.

      what do you mean with "play for strong hand and not just TP and overplay it"? We won't hit much better thant TP

      What I mean is that don't try to play for the stacks with just TP. :) But rather hope to hit bigger.
