      Fold preflop ;) .

      As played I like a ch behind here OTF. Or he ch/f JJ or he slowplays a good hand.

      shoving turn is overplayed... When we bet the flop I'd just check behind here. We can't get value from worse

      Usually I'd fold pre-flop itself but I thought I'm IP and could outplay him postflop.

      Many people would recommend checking behind the turn when you have a flush draw, I guess cause if you get raised then you're in trouble. I however feel that these turn cards are perfect for 2nd barrels as the equity increases when a pair improves to a pair+ flush draw.

      The shoving though was a bit over the top. What do you think about a small bet/fold on the turn?

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Vs unknown no way I am calling here, either 4bet/Fold or just fold. He is also 3betting vs UTG.

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't make sense to bet the flop in first place cause you ain't getting value there from worse nor you don't make better hands to fold. Whereby I'd also Check behind the turn.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah I think I screwed up this hand big time. I rarely make a mistake of calling a 3-Bet with AQ and this definitely is one of them. After that I just felt like I had to play this hand all the way for some weird reason.
