      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $5.78
      SB: $1.07
      BB: $4.51
      UTG: $3.44
      MP: $2.98 UNKNOWN
      CO: $2.05 ROCK (VP 6 / PF 6)

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:club: Q:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, Hero?

      Since MP is unknown, you can't assume that he has a loose opening range. Your hand is doing pretty well against a standard opening range so a call is definitely an option. You can also win by using your position to gain maximum value and make some profitable bluffs. CO is a rock and will probably fold on most flop, so having him in the hand shouldn't matter too much if you decide to call.

      If you 3-bet, you can't expect either to call with worse and will often find yourself dominated when you do hit top pair. You can expect a fair bit of fold equity when you do raise though, and could definitely c-bet bluff some flops.

      Hello Raknyo,

      But still we wouldn't want to play the hand being OOP vs MP and might even allow rocks to set-mine easily. Just take down the pot right here than start to overplay your hand postflop.

      Best Regards.
