      No reads on the villain.

      Hero cards: A :heart: A :spade:
      Fyodor17 folds
      VBSEnvoy raises to ($.12)
      Hero raises to ($.30)
      dusty777888 folds
      VBSEnvoy calls ($.20)

      Flop: (Pot: $.68)
      Q :heart: 10 :heart: 3 :spade:

      Hero bets ($.52)
      VBSEnvoy raises to ($1.10)
      Hero goes all-in ($3.16)
      VBSEnvoy calls ($2.58)

      Turn: (Pot: $8.04)
      K :club:

      River: (Pot: $8.04)
      A :club:

      Showdown:
      VBSEnvoy shows: Q :club: 10 :club:
      Hero shows:
      Hero wins the pot of ($7.64 with three of a kind, Aces.)


      Obviously I was lucky to win this pot.

      Did I overplay the aces?
      I have a feeling I should have folded when he reraised me on the flop. But should I only fold to the reraise when the board is draw heavy like the one in my example and perhaps go allin when the flop is dry?

      Hello ChewbroCColi,

      Preflop: Fix your 3bet size.

      As played
      Postflop: What do you think he is raising you with on the flop whilst you made already a mistake with 3bet size preflop? He got really good odds to Call so I guess you will very often face a stronger hand what raises here.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks for your quick response Veriz.

      I am just not quite sure what you mean by "fix your 3bet size".

      I have been taught to 2,5x or 3x his raise when I 3bet. What am I doing wrong? :)

      2,5x? Huh? I'd like to see the material which is advices that. :( 3x is min and vs smaller opens even 4x, especially if deep.

      Thanks for clearing that up for me. ^_^ I am quite sure I saw it in a video but probably not from pokerstrategy.com ;)
