      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: http://www.pokertracker.com

      BTN: 152.3 BB
      Hero (SB): 682.2 BB
      BB: 47.6 BB
      UTG: 170.5 BB
      MP: 100 BB
      CO: 100 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Qh Qd

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, Hero raises to 15 BB, fold, UTG calls 12 BB, BTN calls 12 BB

      Flop: ($4.60, 3 players) Th Qs Jd
      Hero bets 15 BB, UTG calls 15 BB, fold

      Is it ok small bet on flop, so that AJ can call? And I expect TT, JJ, KK, AA, AK to raise so I can go all in. The problem was AK, against I still have some outs. Is it ok push on river? Still just AK wins against my hand, and AA, KK, and other sets call.
      More important question, how should I play if I was UTG with AQ in the same situation? I guess call flop fold turn? I dont see any other worse hand betting 2 times.

      Turn: ($7.60, 2 players) 7h
      Hero bets 37 BB, UTG calls 37 BB

      River: ($15.00, 2 players) 4c
      Hero bets 106.8 BB, UTG calls 103.5 BB and is all-in

      Hero shows Qh Qd (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 70%, Flop 85%, Turn 91%)
      UTG mucks Qc Ah (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 30%, Flop 15%, Turn 9%)
      Hero wins 0 BB
      Hero wins 347 BB

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Please try to have the proper format for hands in the future (if it works for you). Instructions can be found here: How to post a hand for discussion

      Preflop: 3-bet/squeeze is fine and size is ok considering we are deep with both.

      Flop: Small bet is fine but at the same time we can get more value by betting larger from Qx hands.

      If we were UTG with AQo we should muck it preflop this deep so we wouldn't really be in this spot (unless of course we play against super aggro 3-bettors). AQs would be a call more often.

      As played betting turn is fine but since it's a blank we can bet bigger for value so we leave ourselves 1/2 pot on river.
