      Hi there,

      Villian is playing 42/18, probably on tilt, down 2Bis in 63 hands.

      I was ready to lay this down on the turn expecting a set of 3's or 5's. However his huge bet makes no sense.

      Any advice?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.75, 4 folds, MP2 calls $1.25.

      Flop: ($3.85) 5, 3, Q (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $2.42, MP2 raises to $4.84, Hero calls $2.42.

      Turn: ($13.53) T (2 players)
      MP2 bets $10.25, Hero raises to $26.78, MP2 calls $13.25(All-In).

      River: ($63.81) K (2 players)

      Final Pot: $63.81.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(A Q).
      MP2 shows a pair of tens(T J).

      Hero wins with a pair of queens(A Q).

      he's on tilt as you said and looks like a spazzy player. If he has a set so be it, this is already a 3bet pot and given the stack to pot ratio your TPTK hand is way too strong to fold. He should have QJs and KQ a lot more often than 55/33 in my opinion, as well as a ton of crap if he's tilting

      Hello 3prswins,

      Though I wouldn't take it as pure 3bet-pot (though of course it is a 3bet pot but we are getting more easily away in those smaller 3bet pots) cause it's still a min-raise from him and we are a bit deeper. But for the the given information + him being pretty loose I will have tough time to get away, most likely would have played the same way.

      Best Regards.
