      Villain unknown
      I thought 3betting for value from MP was a bit thin because it looks so strong.

      Do you think this is a good flop to float?
      At the time i thought i can rep a lot of turns esp if a spade hits.
      But looking back, im not sure how many 8x hands or flushes i have in my range, since calling from MP is usually going to be small/mid PP.

      followed through with my plan OTT, trying to rep 8x & flushes, but now that i think of it, if i dont have many 8x/flushes in my range im only really repping 66 so maybe it was a bad spot?

      OTR hows my sizing? I think i should have bet ~$4.50 since not much is calling except flushes.
      When he called my turn raise i thought he must have something like KK,QQ with a spade.

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A:spade: Q:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 4 folds

      UTG bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.25, UTG calls $1.35

      River: ($6.05) 3:spade: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $3.70, UTG calls $3.70

      Results: $13.45 pot ($0.61 rake)
      Final Board: 6:spade: 8:spade: 8:club: 9:spade: 3:spade:
      UTG mucked A:diamond: 8:diamond: and lost (-$6.65 net)
      Hero showed A:spade: Q:diamond: and won $12.84 ($6.19 net)

      Hello dannywratten,

      Preflop: Rather would 3bet here than flat-call it vs UTG who we don't even know that much. We have so many opponents behind us and we don't want to play the hand OOP/multiway if people behind us decide to limp in while they get really good odds now after you also limping. AQs we could consider doing that.

      As played
      Flop: I'd rather raise the flop while I smell weakness in his CB while also have working overcards/backdoor FD than float it. Of course raising is still fine but I guess we could even by raising make a AK type of hand to fold.

      As played
      Turn: As you see his sizing even turned into bigger one now and I rarely doubt that you having much fold equity here with such a raise size. If you want to raise then at least do it a bit bigger ~$3 at least.

      As played
      River: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
