      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP2:
      $47,5
      MP3:
      $112,5
      Hero:
      $116,45

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      MP2 openraise = 16%
      Fto3B = 73%
      MP3 3B = 4%
      MP3 ColdCall = 17%

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:diamond: , Q:spade:
      MP2 raises to $1,00, MP3 calls $1,00, CO folds, Hero raises to $5,50, 4 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      I sqz with a wide range in such situations, but with this hand i also want calls from weaker hands.

      There was a 50/6 player in the SB.
      Is this the only way i could play the hand?
      I will never get called by a worse hand from MP2.
      Even the BB will call me rarely.

      Final Pot: $3,75

      I make it $4 or $4.5... Doesn't need to be more expensive.

      Hello chocular77,

      I like your play here and I wouldn't change much. Of course we could play around with the raise sizes but I doubt that has a huge affect. Well played!

      Best Regards.

      I raised more because i don't want to give them good odds for a set.
      With $4 MP2 would have an easier call and MP3 would get also good odds.

      What just sucks about this spot is, that i will rarely win anything more than the $2,75 which is in the pot.
