      $10.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players

      BB: $10.00 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 13, 3B: 14, AF: 0.8, Hands: 24
      UTG: $20.64 - VPIP: 75, PFR: 25, 3B: 0, AF: 4.1, Hands: 24
      MP: $10.04 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 65
      Hero (CO): $10.10 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 7, AF: 4.2, Hands: 18810
      BTN: $5.00 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 21, 3B: 13, AF: 0.3, Hands: 24
      SB: $14.77 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 11, 3B: 6, AF: 3.0, Hands: 186

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with Q :diamond: Q :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.20, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.90, 3 folds, UTG raises to $1.60, Hero calls $0.70

      Flop: ($3.35) 5 :club: 2 :diamond: T :heart: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $1.80, UTG calls $1.70

      Turn: ($6.95) J :heart: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.90, Hero raises to $6.70, UTG calls $5.80

      I 3bet preflop for value. Mainly to get called by worse, which is typical at my site.
      I'd 3bet w/ AQ, AJ too.

      In a way his small 4bet looks weak. I can either:
      - 5bet small and call shove;
      - 5bet shove;
      - call 4bet and play postflop.

      It's hard for me to 5bet because he might fold all stupid hands like AQ, AJ, AT, KQ, KJ, KT, etc.
      And shove hands which is close to a flip like AK, JJ+ or smthg.

      I don't like my preflop play, I think I'd 5bet pre and play for stacks now.

      Villain's bet seems way too weak to have AA, KK so I 3bet to get value.
      The same on the turn. Sometimes he will have there JJ maybe, but those are just 3 combos from all his hands there.

      Hello Anger86,

      Well, it will be either a trap or just nothing. One thing you could do is to Call the flop and reevaluate his play on the turn. Usually if he goes into bigger side and when a FD appears it could be very likely that he is trapping with KK/AA. :)

      But you can treat the min-bet as weakness on the flop and raise, although I'd still call on the turn.

      Best Regards.
