      UTG+2: $4.30 (43 bb)
      MP1: $11.32 (113.2 bb)
      MP2: $7.13 (71.3 bb)
      MP3: $4 (40 bb)
      CO: $11.35 (113.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $3.85 (38.5 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $7.42 (74.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q A
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.25, 2 folds, CO calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1, 3 folds, CO calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.40) 9 A 9 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.85 and is all-in, CO calls $2.85

      Turn: ($8.10) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($8.10) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:[spoiler] $8.10 pot ($0.36 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A 9 8 6

      MP1 47/25/59 CO 24/11/176 and same tricky player

      I thought I ahead against MP1 range and I tried to steal dead money.
      On flop, I still ahead because AK and AA should reraise on preflop.

      Is it villain's fault if he had AA or AK and is this play +ev?

      Hey,

      I would raise a bit bigger preflop just to get my stack perfectly under the potsized. The variables dont change preflop as he wont really care about 5-10cents more

      the Flop as played is fine, against his whole range you make money. Foreseeing you lost this one, its just unlucky & shortterm results

      Best regards,
      Gerv
