      Final Board: 5:heart: 6:heart: Q:spade:
      Hero mucked Q:heart: A:club: and lost (-$11.25 net)
      BB mucked and won $22.80 ($11.55 net)

      24/19 78hands. BB

      BTN was aggresive fish.

      I think he can flat QQ+/AK preflop to keep the fish?

      On this flop? I don`t see him bluffing too often with a min raise, so i`m probably against QQ+, maybe nut FD (AK/AJ) and sometime AQ?

      Pre Flop
      why did you 3bet? im guessing its for value against the fish. do you have any reads or seen him cold calling hands?

      i agree that he could show up with a hand like QQ+/AK but i think often enough he could also have broadways like QJ, QTo or sometimes random stuff like Ah4h.

      unless you can exclude hands like QJ or QT from his coldcalling range i think its fine to continue by shipping over. there are many dominated hands he could have.

      if he shows you bad news and turns up with the dreaded QQ+, then you can make a note that he coldcalled to keep the fish in, otherwise do not assume everyone you see is a competent regular.

      Im not folding flop for sure. I think your decision to bet fold is an uncertain one and if u are not sure whatto do vs a raise u can consider checking flop. I am doubtful that u can go for three streets od value anyway.

      But i would bet myself and call the raise and checkshove blank turns mostly
