      Hello ramadas,

      Preflop: The problem with your hand is that you are really against a very small 3bettor plus his stack ain't even full. So what's going to be the best? If we 4bet and get it in, can we play it profitable? That mainly depends how loose this guy goes to showdown. But assuming his range is going to be stronger here we might not be capable of doing that. Unless we see this guy 3betting looser. Even against for the given odds calling sometimes is going to be close cause we will rarely know where we stand if we hit one of our pairs. But most likely I would still end up calling and reevaluating the postflop play.

      As played
      Postflop: Yes, turn should be rather a give up cause we don't beat much anymore. QQ got there and even if he 3bets AQ which also got there, so only hope to see is something like AK with we chop.

      Best Regards.
