      BTN: $14.58 (58.3 bb)
      SB: $21.81 (87.2 bb)
      BB: $23.65 (94.6 bb)
      UTG: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $34.19 (136.8 bb)
      CO: $42.37 (169.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A 8
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.75, CO raises to $2.75, 2 folds, BB calls $2.50, Hero calls $2

      Flop: ($8.35) 3 Q A (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $5.25, BB folds, Hero calls $5.25

      Turn: ($18.85) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $15, Hero raises to $26.19 and is all-in, CO calls $11.19

      Coldcaller is a passive fish
      CO is an aggressive regular, 3bets wide IP, reasonably aggressive postflop

      Calling preflop is a little iffy, but I'm getting good odds an have position on the fish.
      On the flop my plan is to c/c once and c/f turn, because I expect him to cbet most of his range and than give-up.
      On the turn I hit 2 pair and I'm not really sure what to do...

      Preflop defend is too loose. Despite stackdepth, he made it really large. I prefer to 4b bluff with this hand.

      As played, i fold flop. If u call u should checkraise turn. I think his range on flop crushes u. I dont think hr cbets light into 2 other players on a super wet board (two broadwayd and monotone). Calling flop is rrally optimistic and best case scenario is for u to be up against a one diamond hand.
