      Villain's "3-bet preflop" statistic is way too high = 13%, also his AF is high = 3.2

      So, after his 4-bet I would go all-in.

      Btw, what was his "Went to Showdown" & "Win Money at Showdown" stats?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: What's the reason of 3betting in first place? Also you should be 3betting bigger while giving him the opportunity to get good odds. If you went for value then 5bet it and get it in rather than Call.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would you Call the flop and fold the turn, it didn't change that much. Of course Tx got there but at the same time you beat the same hands on the turn what you beat on the flop. He wont have that many Tx hands in his range.

      Best Regards.

      aaaa i don't know how to play QQ and AK especially vs UTG raiser. im pretty sure it should be a 3bet/fold. but then if it is, i have no idea of the reason behind the 3bet. it can't be for value otherwise i am planning on going broke preflop right? and it can't be a bluff since im pretty much ahead most of the time with QQ/AK. so surely it's a semi-bluff? and so if we get called then we re-evaluate postflop..

      i will read articles and resources about betting because this seems to be a big leak in my game. and you also keep telling me to bet bigger so i will work on this too.

      reason why i folded is because i felt a little lost and didn't want to play a big pot vs UTG initiative on a draw heavy board. which means i shouldn't have been in the hand the first place!

      thanks for the evaluation

      @gigenieks: i don't know what his other stats were but i don't think the sample was too big.

      i call

      also be careful with the 4bet% stat because it can only be built on top of hands that he already raised with. so 10% 4bet in a solid sample isn't actually a maniac 4bettor.

      hey tomaloc

      yeah i understand about the sample not being adequate. just i saw him playing aggressively like that quite a lot on the table. but anyways i learnt my lesson :f_biggrin:
