      River: ($4.05) 3 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.05.


      Here, I'm fearing to isolate against JJ+, AKo so I just call, hoping to face a lose 3bet. When Villain bets 2/3, I still beat TT, JJ, A9s, AJs+, AQo. So I just call.
      The turn starts to be a bit drawy. Since I'm committed, I shove, hoping to be ahead of his hand.

      What about this line? Too weak?

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      Doesn't make sense to Call there, it's way too bad spot to do that while also being OOP. Especially if you going to overplay your hand like that. What do you think pays you on the turn which is worse?

      Best Regards.

      Not much but I think his range on the flop is not that strong. At least, not stronger than us on average. Based on the flop range I gave him -that doesn't change since I'm first to act- for that pot, I need to be ahead of him only 45% of the time.
      There is stil Ad9d+, TT+. What do you think?

      preflop: so OOP your line with QQ is bet/raise/shove?
