      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      UTG openraise = 17%
      Fto3B = 36%
      FtoCB = 44%
      4Bed once

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , Q:diamond:
      MP2 raises to $1,50, 4 folds, Hero raises to $5,00, MP2 calls $3,50.

      If i raise i can never get a call from AJ.
      So should i rather call oop?
      Should i rather 3B with very strong hands and some bluffs instead of AQ where i can get much from a weaker hand in this situation?

      Flop: ($10,25) 5:spade: , 3:diamond: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, MP2 calls $5,00.

      Made a cbet since i still got overcards + GS.

      Turn: ($20,25) J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      River: ($20,25) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $20,25

      Hello chocular77,

      Preflop: I'd rather be calling than 3betting it being OOP. Also the reason why not to 3bet is cause it seems that you don't have a basic plan postflop. :(

      As played
      Postflop: Rather 2nd barrel the turn than Check it, we ain't going to show profit in long run if we just CB once on the flop and hope that he is going to fold his floats/PPs.

      Best Regards.
