      Preflop: Hero is Mp with A, Q.
      folds, Hero raises to $1.50, folds, Btn raises to $3.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($7.75) 2, 3, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, Btn bets $5.00, Hero calls $5.00.

      Turn: ($17.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Btn bets $9.50, Hero raises to $57.16(All-In)

      First of all, do we like calling here preflop given villains aggressive stats and wide range? I figure AQ is dominating his range a lot and we can just let him barrel off when we make top pair. Or do we prefer to 4bet here given that we are out of position and will miss the flop quite often? His 3bet size is rather small, which kind of hints at strength.

      Any comments on post flop play given calling pre?

      I'm not a zoom expert, but if those are his stats and they are kinda significant sample size wise, then I like your play.

      Personally, I would 4bet here and after that, you have to get in in of course.

      Hello DailyDollarPro,

      Preflop: I'd rather 4bet myself here than Call it while also being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Would you also shove on the turn with made flush?

      Best Regards.
