      BTN: $1.34 (67 bb)
      SB: $2.01 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $0.44 (22 bb)
      UTG+1: $2.36 (118 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.05 (202.5 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $2.89 (144.5 bb)
      MP2: $1.31 (65.5 bb)
      MP3: $1.44 (72 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A Q
      UTG+1 calls $0.02, UTG+2 raises to $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, 4 folds, SB calls $0.03, BB calls $0.02, UTG+1 calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.20) Q 8 4 (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.06, UTG+2 calls $0.06, Hero ???

      I can't imagine folding this.
      How big a raise?

      i'd tend to 3bet pre just to avoid exactly what happened... :f_biggrin:

      this is quite a FML spot because either you don't protect or you bloat a multiway pot with a quite marginal holding :f_biggrin:
      that said i think i'd still raise ~44 cents (lol BB) and see what happens...

      Yes, it is crappy.
      It seems to me that the meaning of a minraise is different in zoom.

      It could mean, "I have something, and I want callers, please".

      It can also mean, "I want to raise in case everyone has quick-folded, and I get the pot w/ nothing, and I don't want to commit too much".

      It can also mean, "I have no idea what to do, so I'll click here once, and then click this one".

      I considered raising pre, but then I'm in a 3Bet pot with a lot of players yet to play holding only AQo

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: Vs the min-raise just raise it up for value even. We don't want to play AQo in multiway pot.

      As played
      Postflop: Put BB all-in and reevaluate the further actions. If I'd get 3bet I'd most likely get out of the pot while I would assume we are more often against a trap.

      Best Regards.
