      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $0.67
      BTN: $0.82
      SB: $1.60
      BB: $2.08
      UTG: $2.94
      Hero (MP): $2.03

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:spade: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.39, 2 players) Q:heart: T:club: 6:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.28, UTG raises to $0.56, Hero raises to $1.10, UTG raises to $2.76 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.75 and is all-in

      Turn: ($4.09, 2 players) 2:spade:

      River: ($4.09, 2 players) 9:diamond:

      UTG shows Q:club: Q:spade: (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 18%, Flop 90%, Turn 95%)
      Hero shows A:spade: A:diamond: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 82%, Flop 10%, Turn 5%)
      UTG wins $3.95

      UTG is 25/4/0 VPIP/PFR/3BET over 85 hands.

      His PFR being so small (even tho it could be sample size) i put him on QQ,TT,AQs,AQo,AhKh which are hands he could flat my 3bet preflop with.
      I feel like there's no way I'm not 3betting on the flop and when i get 4bet we only need 28% equity to call.
      Is anything you think i should have done diffrently, maybe calling his flop raise to keep him from folding TPTK sometimes?

      Hello mayapnd,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger ~$0,24 and not give him good odds for set mining.
      Postflop: The problem is that his PFR is so small which indicates that his preflop range is mainly a very strong range. Doubt that there are even many Qx hands. Therefore it's rather a trap and where we could even consider Bet/Folding the flop, especially when he min-raises like that which very often is a trap from those guys. But if you even decide to continue then why do you min-3bet, just get it in.

      Best Regards.
