      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $2.71
      SB: $0.66
      BB: $1.34
      UTG: $1.63
      UTG+1: $2.67
      UTG+2: $1.31
      MP: $4.84
      Hero (MP+1): $4.67
      CO: $2.15

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:club: K:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.07, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.24, fold, BTN calls $0.24, fold, fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.41, Hero calls $0.17, BTN raises to $2.71 and is all-in, UTG+1 calls $2.26 and is all-in, fold

      UTG is 13/5/100fold3b(2)/55hands. BTN is unknown
      of course first thing is, "don't 3bet this trash vs such a nit opening from UTG" :f_biggrin: but i'm only playing NL2 for fun and some interesting spots so i have no regrets :D

      "as played", do we get "odds" to call the min4bet in "middle position" in what looks like a 3way, and would QJs be a better hand to play in such a way? KQs is just so hardly dominated, can't even hit K trips with it :D

      Flop: ($5.78, 2 players) 8:spade: J:club: 5:diamond:

      Turn: ($5.78, 2 players) J:spade:

      River: ($5.78, 2 players) 4:club:

      UTG+1 shows K:diamond: K:spade: (Two Pair, Kings and Jacks) (Pre 10%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      BTN shows A:heart: A:diamond: (Two Pair, Aces and Jacks) (Pre 90%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      BTN wins $5.58

      Hello Tomaloc,

      It's FR, it's ZOOM, it's UTG range. :P So I don't really like the 3bet in first place.

      As played vs the 4bet most likely I wouldn't be calling cause you can't really Call it on the flop if you even hit a draw, the Bet will be too big which could mean that you just have to ship every draw on the flop. :D Might also put yourself into complications cause it's very likely that you are against KK/AA there.

      Best Regards.
