      SB: $4.40 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 14, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 7
      Hero (BB): $5.35 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 4.0, Hands: 20943
      UTG: $10.75 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 5.0, Hands: 37
      CO: $3.62 - VPIP: 50, PFR: 20, 3B: 0, AF: 8.0, Hands: 10
      BTN: $6.17 - VPIP: 54, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 13

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :club: Q :spade:
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.05, SB raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, 1 fold, SB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.95) Q :heart: 5 :heart: 6 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.90, SB raises to $2.95, Hero raises to $4.90, SB calls $1 all in

      Well. I don't really know what weaker would want to stack here...but I also don't really know why 55/66 would 3bet me here.

      And folding TPTK on the flop after I was 3-betted for no apparent reason...was kinda difficult for me. The pot is already big.

      Hi German,

      These small donk/3-bet from unknown guys are usually on the stronger side so I am tempted to fold more often versus his 3-bet.

      Now this pot is a 3-bet pot and villain may play Qx like this (I expect draws to call) and the rare sets QQ/55/66 so because of that I don't mind going with the hand, but then again don't be surprised if he shows you the set :)

      Why wouldn't 55/66 3-bet us when we show strength on both preflop and flop? It would be stupid for him to just call.

      Yeah, agree with a set, it would make sense.

      Should I be surprised when he showed me AA? I think I shouldn't :f_frown:

      I actually lose the whole lot of stacks to slowplayed monsters. Is it really such a bad idea to slowplay them preflop and I'm just result-oriented?

      I wouldn't be surprised to see KK/AA/QQ there at all. Some guys love to slowplay them but it's not something I would add in his range often.

      But again, those small donks followed by a 3-bet are not very weak usually.
