      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $8.98 (89.8 bb)
      SB: $10.11 (101.1 bb)
      BB: $9.64 (96.4 bb)

      MP2: $7.53 (75.3 bb)
      MP3: $44.07 (440.7 bb)
      CO: $76.83 (768.3 bb) 14/11/9%3b (191h)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q Q
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, CO raises to $1.20, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.90

      Flop: ($2.55) 2 K 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.10, Hero folds

      Is there a better way to play this? Villain's stats look like a competent TAG. I don't want to get it in while we are 220bb deep because I doubt he stacks off with worse, which is why I don't reraise. But also I can't fold such a strong hand against his 9% 3b. So I choose to call and play postflop even though it sucks to be out of position. I could hit a set (I have odds to setmine this deep) or just have an overpair.

      On the flop, not much to do? It's quite possible that I folded the best hand (especially because his bet sizing says "please fold" not "please call"), but I can't continue for 3 streets out of position.

      Hello member001,

      Nah, I doubt that I'd play much differently it will be pretty difficult to Call down on the turn again. And of course I wouldn't still exclude strong hands from his range, we are deep so he is trying to get value from your weaker hands.

      Best Regards.
