      I know I shouldn't have called on the preflop since I had quite strong hand, but I was hoping to build the pot. Do you think it's a bad play?

      With his (villain) status, do you guys think he would fold if I raised in 4BB + 1 limper?

      I didn't bet large enough on the flop, because I thought he was having a straight draw, which turned out he was. What would you do?

      Your hand is strong enough to raise preflop. You can bet pot on flop, because pot is too small and there's value from Qx, straight draw, maybe PP.

      Turn play is questionable since he could be holding even 74. I would probably fold unless I saw him donking a lot during those 40 hands.

      You should have raised pf to at least 0,20c

      Flop cbet always and keep on betting turn and river..

      Since you just called preflop, your bet in flop is two small, make 2/3 bet as your standard there. Turn and river are questionable because BB is a maniac and he holds any 2 in his hand but I was wiiling to call turn and fold river..

      Again we are not playing according to SSS - we have 100bb. I think you need to reread the strategies.

      Preflop I think we have an easy raise here with AQo.
      You can't really build the pot if you just call, right?

      So we are 3way on the flop. Why do you put only one player on a straight draw (what about the others)?
      And then, if he has a straight draw, why don't you bet potsize and charge him more to chase his draw?

      As played on the flop, calling turn is close but I still think I'd call.

      On the river I prefer folding.
      Lots of two pairs, even flush got there and I don't think we are good 1 out of 3 times here to justify a call.
