      Hero (CO): $3.75 (187.5 bb)
      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $4.92 (246 bb)
      BB: $3.20 (160 bb)
      MP1: $0.96 (48 bb)
      MP2: $5 (250 bb)
      MP3: $2.51 (125.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BTN raises to $0.26, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.18

      Flop: ($0.55) K 8 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.55) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($0.55) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.41, BTN raises to $0.82, Hero?

      I honestly thought he his AJ or something, slowly playing me for the flop and turn seemed out of the question. So AA, or KK, seemed out of the question. I honestly should have known better to 3 bet me on the flop then do nothing. AJ, or AQ are the only hands thta make any sense.

      Hmm... any stats on the guy?
      I usually fold this preflop vs the 3bet OOP unless there are some special reads that make it playable OOP.
      Even against a 6% range (and it's questionable whether he 3bets that much) we're not really showing a profit since we're giving up our equity share too often w/o reads - even on an Ahigh board we're not comfortable c/calling more than 1-2 streets.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     43.89%  35.54%   8.35% { AQo }
      BU     56.11%  47.76%   8.35% { TT+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+ }

      As played I like flop and turn, you could argue for starting to barrel turn&river if you can get him to fold TT-QQ, but checking down ui can be fine too.
      On the river I'd b/f, we're basically calling for the split vs AJ and AQ but we'll see a slowplayed KK+ or AK way more often imo.
