      Hero (BTN): $34.48 (344.8 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10.36 (103.6 bb)
      MP: $16.57 (165.7 bb)
      CO: $10.20 (102 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 6
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB raises to $1.15, BB folds, Hero calls $0.85

      Flop: ($2.40) Q 6 T (2 players)
      SB bets $1.80, Hero folds

      $2.40 pot ($0.16 rake)
      Final Board: Q 6 T
      Hero mucked A 6 and lost (-$1.15 net)
      SB mucked and won $2.24 ($1.09 net)

      Villian was 3bet 20% from blinds so I decide to defend my suited ace. Not sure if a 4 bet would be better here? I was planning to play aggressive on many flops. When playing i though this flop hit his range too hard and no backdoor flush but now looking at it I think it hits mine far harder so what do you think about clicking it back here since we still have equity for trips and 2pair. Preflop Im still unsure about too.

      Hello steven5656,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: What's the reason for calling here? You can't play your hand profitable by just calling and hoping to catch something, especially whilst your hand is hardly dominated by better Ax hands which this guy 3bets you. If you think he 3bets that loose then 4bet/Fold instead.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do whilst his CB is also pretty strong.

      Best Regards.
