      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :club: Q :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.15, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.46, 1 fold
      I look like a NIT 3better in his eyes. Well, on one hand my hand is very strong, that would incline me to only call and play postflop.
      On the other, on A-high flop if we go broke, I'm wasted. Well, I could bluff-catch the flop if I hit TP, but I think it's just safter to 3bet now and take the pot.. but I could do it with A2 aswell, dont need AQ for this, aaargh. If he folds PPs I'm happy.

      Hello,

      I like it here.
      Calling OOP with AQo against a tight MP raiser is not the best option, so I prefer to 3bet here and try to take the pot down.
      I'd make it $0.55.

      Best,
      Plamen

      We are OOP and we don't want to give him good odds to call our bet here and play in position.
      Also, if you had AA would you do it $0.46 again?
