      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      I don't understand your play at all here? Why do you Check/Raise after a raise on the flop, assuming also having loose opponents there? You rarely have any fold equity, just overplayed your hand. :(

      Strongly advice to fold those hands preflop if you don't even know what's profitable play and what's not. :(

      Best Regards.

      I agree that I overplayed, my thinking was that BU can raise with FD, Qx hands and I thought that I can make fold Qx hands. But as played, would you call BU raise or fold? If you call that we are doing on the turn if A comes?

      Well, you ain't just against one opponent there. :) And nope, we can't really Call cause BB could easily just 3bet himself and then we would be just donating money into the pot.
