      Poker Stars $50.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -
      MP: $64.96 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 17, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 6
      CO: $132.94 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 17, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 6
      BTN: $18.00 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 14, 3B: 7, AF: 0.0, Hands: 50
      SB: $50.00 - VPIP: 8, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 12
      BB: $54.35 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 0.7, Hands: 87
      Hero (UTG): $52.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 7, AF: 4.8, Hands: 166592

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with A :spade: A :club:
      Hero raises to $1.75, 1 fold, CO calls $1.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($4.25) Q :diamond: 2 :heart: K :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, CO raises to $9.03, Hero raises to $17.25, CO folds

      I'd expect villain to have a good percent of the time some kind of draw. As I did not want to see many turn cards I chose to play for stacks on the flop. Any reason to play the hand some other way? Like call flop donk non :diamond: turns?

      You should only be losing to KQ and 22. A lot of people will call flop and look to raise turn with a monster, so I agree with your thinking that this raise is mostly either a draw, air or Kx. In which case I think it is better to call the raise with the plan of x/r safe turn cards. On the flop you are dead flipping vs J:diamond: T:diamond: , however on a safe turn card (which hits 71% of the time), we improve to 70% equity.

      The fact that he folded to your 3bet suggests that you probably missed value by raising yet would have paid off his nuts.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      No way you can Call the flop without even having A, therefore just get it in if you assume him having a wider raising range there. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
