      Hey,

      vill:
      ~Unknown, can be solid, can be but more callhappy... Certainly not a fish or a nit to this moment.

      Preflop: Vs more unknown players I still like to 3bet here cause we don't dominate as much as we do with AQ and to playability with AJo is a bit worse than with AJs. Also we don't know if we can bluff him postflop... Now we find out how he reacts to 3bets.

      Postflop: Broke?
      Broke with AQ? I think so...

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: What's the reason then 3betting in first place here if he is unknown?

      As played
      Postflop: If we CB here then most likely I'd plan to Bet/Fold it, our equity isn't going to be very good here even vs pair+FD he will have decent equity. But could be already very dominated.

      Best Regards.

      I already pointed that out. I'll do it again.. :)

      1) AJ is too strong to fold.

      Reasons for raising:
      1) Calling and playing oop vs someone unknown sucks.
      2) playability is not that great (offsuit)
      3) we find out how he reacts to 3bets.

      Well, but I mainly mean how do you know what he calls you? If you don't even know then you can't 3bet it for value either. Nor 3bet/Folding might be sometimes too weak with such a hand. Instead the hand plays well even by just calling and keeping his range wide.
