      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.0.50906.2

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), Hero raises for $0.06, UTG3 folds, MP1 raises for $0.14, 3 folds, BU calls, SB folds, BB calls, Hero calls

      Flop: ($0.57 - 28.50 bb) Q:spade: , 7:spade: , 4:heart: (4 Players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.57, MP1 folds, BU calls, BB raises for $1.82,

      Hero folds, BU calls, BB gets uncalled back ($0.15)

      Turn: ($4.48 - 224 bb) T:diamond: (2 Players)

      River: ($4.48 - 224 bb) 5:spade: (2 Players)

      BU shows A :club: Q :club: (a pair)
      BB shows K :spade: T :spade: (a flush)

      BB wins $4.19

      [PreFlop] Opened 3BB with AQs was quite clear here, but the LAG MP1 3bet without hesiation, the BU and BB just called.

      [Flop] We flopped TPGK on drawing board, I decided to take action first to protect my hand with full pot size bet and see how the others react, but it wasn't going in my way the BB Raised instead of calling like BU.

      With the remaining stack before betting on Flop, I decide to commit with my TPGK on two betting rounds Flop and Turn , but with a multiway-pot and an surprised aggressive action from my opponent, should I have continued or changed my commit plan here?

      Hey anhvusa,

      Why do you pot it on the flop? No need for it just make a normal Cbet(~0,4$) and reevalute further actions.

      As played:
      Well, you are in a 4 way pot and somebody X/R pot size bet and call? Do you expect to be ahead against a TAG as you mentioned? Also dont forget that there is a player behind you. You need a 26,15% for a break even call. Do you think you get it? Lets try:

      Board: Q:spade: 7:spade: 4:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+2  30.86%  12.07%  18.79% { AhQh }
      BB     69.14%  50.36%  18.79% { QQ, 77, 44, AQs, AsKs, AsJs, AQo }

      I think this range could be even a bit loose but overall should be realistic. So if we exclude rake it is gonna be at the best a small profit.

      Best regards,
