      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 257.8 BB
      SB: 64.3 BB
      Hero (BB): 188.6 BB
      UTG: 75.1 BB
      MP: 51.8 BB
      CO: 29 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero raises to 9 BB, BTN calls 6 BB

      Flop: (18.5 BB, 2 players) A:club: T:heart: K:diamond:
      Hero bets 11 BB, BTN calls 11 BB

      Turn: (40.5 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero bets 24 BB, fold

      Hero wins 38.5 BB

      Is my 3bet size acceptable, since we are deep? I wanted to keep some amount of Ax weaker hands in play, considering we are deep.

      Flop: I really dont like the board, he hits mostly better, nothing, or in best case AJ, or KQ which fold on turn. I planned to bet bet bet /fold.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine. However we still have to fold to a 4-bet but with this 3-bet we can keep his range quite wide and dominate a lot of it.

      Flop: Not the greatest flop for us but we still have value from broadways+pair and hands like AJ.

      If we know nothing about villain bet/bet/bet sounds fine although river may be thin (depending on the card).
