      UTG+2: $0.79 (39.5 bb)
      MP1: $2.02 (101 bb)
      MP2: $2.18 (109 bb)

      BB: $1.30 (65 bb)
      UTG+1: $2.43 (121.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      UTG+1 raises to $0.08, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.08, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.22

      Flop: ($0.71) 5 4 8 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.53, MP1 folds

      Thought process:
      Didn't like the limp here as it would be expensive to raise here :P but at the same time didn't feel I could lay down AQ just yet, so decided for the raise...
      Flop: I hit nothing, but thought I had generated alot of FE even against this type of player, and I had a backdoor, not the best but still, so decided to bet thinking he would call me down :P (he didn't BIG surprise) my fear tilt... always thinking the worst outcome :P

      UTG+1:

      Hey Resilence,

      Calling is not really gonna be an option here. Our target in this pot with our AQo is the MP1 player since he seems to have more calling tendecies. So I would also squeeze/fold and as well Cbet the flop but smaller like 0,4$ to secure myself 2 free cards and get value from his draws. Well played!

      Best regards,
