      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.95) 4:heart: 8:diamond: 8:spade:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.45, UTG+1 calls $0.45

      TURN ($1.85) 4:heart: 8:diamond: 8:spade: 5:diamond:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($1.85) 4:heart: 8:diamond: 8:spade: 5:diamond: K:club:

      UTG+1 bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.20, UTG+1 folds

      Hero shows Q:heart: A:diamond:

      Hero wins $3.47


      He's 24/21/3.5AF/75 cbet in 93 hands.

      So on the flop I decide not to wait and try to take this pot down. To my surprise he takes a c/c line as a PFA. Which really felt like he's super weak, but understands that I am betting my whole range after he checks like that.
      Turn 5 changes nothing and I have position, so I decide to keep the pot small and reevaluate river. River is an interesting card and he bets out.
      I really thought for a while, what is he repping. All K hands like AK, KQ, KJ c-bet flop IMO. Felt like he was trying to use river as a scare card, and since he is not repping much, I decided to test it out.

      It worked this time, but is this OK in general? Does my thought process make sense?

      Hello Pkrpains,

      Preflop: Don't call against UTG range here and invite other people come along! You have so many people behind you.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you Bet so small on the flop? :) And otherwise I don't like at all your play on the river, the K is good for him and improves some of his range. Rather make a normal Bet on the flop! But while he is CBetting so much we might even prefer just to Check behind on the flop cause he could be trapping with Check/Call with any PP to induce bluffs.

      But of course the raise on river may work but again if we should do it. :)

      Best Regards.

      So I should rather 3bet or fold my AQ?

      If, for example, PFR is a reg-ish villain in CO, can I call on the button?

      Thank you very much, feels good to see my mistakes and learn from them. :)

      It's not about the CO only but also the persons behind you. But of course it's possible if we expect people behind us be rather tight.

      But most likely I would 3bet or fold. :)
