      ok... i'm not huge fun CC with hands like this but again after the coaching I decided to try it. Maybe I don't understand it and in this situation I should have CC.
      Hmmm... call on the flop in my opinion was correct. On the turn? hmmm hard decision but he could have played in this hand KQ or AQ... but of course his CB T is pretty low so probably he isn't bluffing. On the river I didn't want to overplay my TPTK vs tight player. His blocking bet look very strong and probably I couldn't have called it. I was facing KK, AA :(

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: If you have rather loose opponents behind you then I am not a huge fan of cold calling with AQo here. :( Our plan is usually to play the hand in heads-up pot.

      As played
      Postflop: But as played exactly that happens when you call those hands. You start calling down to much. If you call down the turn then practically you beat the same hands on the river. :( He could even be blockbetting with worse Qx. Then rather fold turn.

      Best Regards.

      3B pre flop would be better play?

      Most likely if you have loose opponents behind you and take the initiative.
