      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $1.52
      UTG2:
      $1.21
      MP1:
      $2.02
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $1.02
      CO:
      $4.03
      BU (Hero):
      $2.00
      SB:
      $0.78


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, A.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.08, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.
      I deviated from the starting hands chart. Perhaps if I am to play AQ after a raise and a cold call, I should squeeze.

      Flop: ($0.27) A, 9, 2 (3 players)
      MP2 bets $0.13, CO calls $0.13, Hero calls $0.13.
      Can I raise here?

      Turn: ($0.66) J (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO bets $0.54, Hero folds, MP2 calls $0.54.

      River: ($1.74) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, CO bets $1.00, MP2 calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $3.74.

      Hi,

      I think 3-bet would be a little better than coldcall, since you often take pot down pre-flop or postflop and also it is a lit easier to play AQs in 3-bet pot rather than 3-way pot.

      Flop raise can be reasonable, but since it is 3-way I would not turn my hand into bluff and dry board and just call. Turn fold against big bet is reasonable- AJ got there and I think CO also slowplays that board 99/22

      best regards,
