      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:club: , Q:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15, 5 folds.

      Flop: ($0.52) Q:club: , 3:heart: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.85, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.02

      (?) vs 48/24/33 (vpip/pfr/hands), is it okay to be willing to go all-in on the flop in this spot? His range is sooo wide, that I don't have any clues as to what hands are he ready go to all-in with..

      I prefer to 3 bet him on preflop.
      On flop, from his af, It seems fine to shove

      I don't call preflop with unpaired hands because we miss 66% of the time so we have to outplay our opponents when we do not hit some % of the time. The problem with calling is that you induce a 2nd caller (MP2) and he induces more calls

      Family pots are bad business and essentially you need solid postflop skills in order to be at least breakeven

      I would 3bet him preflop since he looks pretty loose

      As played I would just flat and induce peels. Now you just get it in versus KQ,AQ,33,22,QQ+

      Thanks guys!

      So, against this loose opponents, 3betting them even from UTG with AQ seems fine? Makes sense actually, but what if they 4bet us, for example this particular opponent.. How can I estimate his 4bet range? :/

      And flatting seems like best option on the flop..

      Because if by raising I half his range to KQ, AQ, 33, 22, QQ+ like you said, I'm underdog longterm..
