      SB: $1.61 (80.5 bb)
      BB: $2.08 (104 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $2.17 (108.5 bb)
      MP: $2 (100 bb)
      CO: $1.17 (58.5 bb)
      BTN: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A Q
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.08, 2 folds
      I know AQ isn't in SHC, but I found to have ahd success with it. Is it normal for AQo in TUG

      Flop: ($0.19) 8 A 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, BTN calls $0.16
      Pretty standard, hit so I bet for value

      Turn: ($0.51) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, BTN calls $0.38
      The Jack scared me a bit, cause I had AJ in his range.

      River: ($1.27) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.76, Hero ?
      Tough spot IMO, but I don't know if he would bet there unless he had something, but I already felt like I had invested a decent amount. AJ was in his range, as well at pocket pairs. Not sure what I was suppose to do. Not to mention the FD that now presented itself.

      Players need really 3-bet a lot that I would AQ from UTG. I think it is very reasonable open and you should show there profit by raising AQ.

      I would either c/c turn and c/c river, since it is hard to call me down anyway on 3 streets or would b/f turn and c/c river. He can have 76s or AQ his turn calling range so I can´t really fold most rivers. Also I can´t be sure if he is always calling turn his sets and AJ or sometimes also raising because of the flushdraw. If he is raising turn his two pair and sets I think it is easy call, since his value range then are only backdoor flushes and maybe AK

      best regards,
