      this is my first hand Evaluation so please tell me if any more information is needed in future!

      I was pretty new to the table and had basicly no real read on the Villian.
      He had 100/23/0.7/50 on the 14 hands he played before.

      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP2: $4.40 (220 bb)
      MP3: $0.82 (41 bb)
      CO: $0.74 (37 bb)
      BTN: $2.21 (110.5 bb)
      SB: $1.20 (60 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $2.47 (123.5 bb)
      MP1: $1.87 (93.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.10, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.16, MP2 folds, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.56) A 7 5 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.14, Hero raises to $0.34, CO folds, SB raises to $0.54, Hero raises to $1.82 and is all-in, SB calls $0.48

      Turn: ($2.60) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($2.60) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $2.60 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: A 7 5 6 K
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.18 net)
      SB showed A Q and won $2.51 ($1.31 net)
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$1.20 net)

      Thanks for your time!

      Hi TobZero,

      Welcome to the hand evaluation forums !

      Based on the information we have so far we can assume villain is probably a big fish.

      Preflop: Why do we just call the min 3-bet that SB is doing (Vs CO) here? We should 4-bet and be happy to get it in with him.

      As played, both SB and CO can have a lot of Ax hands and while CO is a bit shorter SB still has quite a few BBs behind.

      What was your thought process like at the table? Do you expect SB to ever bluff 3-bet on the flop? I wouldn't expect that which means that we need to find what worse hands do this. Maybe some draws? But usually a lot of TP type hands. So I would fold versus the 3-bet.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply that you would like us (the judges) to respond to please hit the "advise judge to take another look" button. Otherwise we may not see your reply.
