      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with Q :club: Q :diamond:
      Hero raises to $1.75, MP calls $1.75, 4 folds

      Flop: ($4.25) 3 :heart: 6 :heart: J :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, MP raises to $10, Hero calls $6.75

      Turn: ($24.25) A :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $12.00, Hero folds

      I did not have that many hands on the villain atm of the hand. Now when I see such a high AF I would be very inclined to 3bet//get it in on the flop.

      But w/o that info how would you play the hand? Folding looks to weak and calling to x/f lots of turn cards again is weak. Better lines that I can take w/o any reads?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Calling in those spots is pretty bad cause we don't even have a BDFD, therefore I'd decide right on the flop what I would do, either 3bet it or just Bet/Fold it. There are just too many cards which we don't want to see and too many cards which we can't continue if he 2nd barrels which usually will happen or we just giving him the chance to get a free card.

      So I'd go for Bet/Fold without any information, vs rather more aggressive guy as you said yourself 3bet-broke. There ain't that many draws either which he could be representing, just FD while I wouldn't see him raising Jx or semi-bluffs like some PPs.

      We must also take into account and he must take it into account that we are opening from UTG. Unless your image was like super loose and you raised a lot of hands -> which could also make him try to fight back vs your whole range while you don't hit that often such a flop with wider range.

      Best Regards.
