      Hello Tiltmeifucan,

      Preflop: Why do you 3bet in first place here? Why this kind of size?

      As played
      Postflop: Either we are 2nd barreling the turn or just Check/Folding, no way you getting the implied odds with your Check/Call.

      Best Regards.

      Why not 0,90$? How much then 1,20$?

      Why i can't 3bet AQs because he is in UTG and his range is strong?

      Yes, correct $1,20 cause we are giving him good odds to set-mine.

      Well, he is MP range but do you think he is going to call you with worse hands or do you turn your AQ into bluff?

      It's bluff, but if he calls down i still have some equity what i could use later on to continue my aggression and force him to fold. Or this is some nonsense again? :D

      I defend my blinds with AQs a lot ( in FR, though what's the difference? :) )
      Though you need to be capable of setting a plan postflop, what would you do if certain card comes and you bet and he calls/raises and so on ..

      Why is that wrong veriz ?

      Why would you 3bet in first place such a strong hand if you are turning it into bluff. 3betting means that we are doing it for value, then rather Call if you don't think it's for value.

      Why is that wrong veriz ?

      The wrong part is not understanding what's the purpose of the hand. You must understand what are you doing with it and turning into bluff such a strong hand at some point might be too strong whilst calling is much better to keep opponents range wide.
