      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $0.94
      CO (Hero):

      BU:

      MP2:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.14, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.14, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.34) Q, Q, A (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17.

      Turn: ($0.68) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.56, Hero calls $0.56.

      River: ($1.8) T (2 players)
      MP2 bets $1.44, Hero calls $1.44.

      Final Pot: $4.68.



      Should I just 3bet pre? If I 3bet pre against this bigstack, what do I do if he 4bets or shoves? I have to fold right?

      Should I ever give up postflop?

      I watched a video the other day where the coach was talking about keeping villains range wide so that is what I was trying to do here. If I reraise on the flop and villain 3bets with AJ or AK, I turn my hand into a bluff and I have to fold. Is this reasoning correct here?

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Preflop: Of course we can keep his range wide but now again the problem with that for a lot beginners is that they just overplay TP. ;) That's why it's more reasonable to rather just 3bet/Fold while the guy could even Call with worse and we have still position and could overplay him with it.

      As played
      Postflop: calling the turn of course is still fine, although I don't really see many hands what we beat on the river which also Bets so big. What do you expect to see there what you beat?

      Best Regards.
