      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $11.44 (114.4 bb) VPIP: 29, PFR: 22, 3B: 24, AF: 7.0, Hands: 49
      MP: $19.66 (196.6 bb)
      SB: $15.92 (159.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $13.86 (138.6 bb)
      CO: $10.23 (102.3 bb) VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 4, AF: 3.4, Hands: 407

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, SB folds, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) Q T 7 (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.59, BTN folds, Hero raises to $2.90, CO raises to $9.83 and is all-in, Hero calls $6.93

      Turn: ($20.91) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($20.91) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $20.91 pot ($1 rake)
      Final Board: Q T 7 6 5
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.40 net)
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$10.23 net)
      CO showed Q Q and won $19.91 ($9.68 net)

      3bet PF instead call? His range on CO is 24/24. I went for a check-raise line here, should I fold to 4bet shove? I'm flipping with overpairs and loosing to any set.

      Hello ferdy81,

      Preflop: Actually both ways can be played. If you think the tight CO wouldn't be 4betting with a lot worse there then you can as well keep their dominated range in the play. Neither wouldn't be that bad if you just squeeze cause CO most likely has a wider range and also BTN flat-call.

      As played
      Postflop: Most likely vs his weak CB I would also play this way and it will be tough to get away with our nutFD+GS+overcards which may even sometimes work. I'd also get it in.

      Best Regards.
