      UTG: $11.07 (110.7 bb)
      MP: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $5.33 (53.3 bb)
      BTN: $12.49 (124.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $9.65 (96.5 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, BTN raises to $0.55, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, CO calls $1.40, BTN calls $0.95

      Flop: ($4.70) 9 6 9 (3 players)
      Hero bets $2.35, CO raises to $3.83 and is all-in, BTN folds, Hero calls $1.48

      Turn: ($12.36) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($12.36) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $12.36 pot ($0.82 rake)
      Final Board: 9 6 9 2 2
      CO showed A A and won $11.54 ($6.21 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$1.50 net)
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$5.33 net)

      Preflop i don´t consider my play bad, BTN can raise with a wide range. About the Cbet though, i´m not all that happy about. The board is paired so it´s a bit less likely that anyone has a hand (specially, given the action preflop).
      On the other hand, what i find suspicious later, is that even when CO was in a sandwhich, he still called my 3-bet, even though BTN could´ve 4-bet back at me. No cbet would´ve been the best option?
      Considering the sizing, i don´t think i could´ve folded to the CO shove.

      Hi Lunarta,

      Preflop: What do we know about the opponents? Are they all unknown?

      Postflop: Simply ck/fold there. We have little equity in there and no pairs are folding. Between CO and BTN there's a pretty high chance that they have pairs.

      I am wondering why the stats arent´showing on the players, when i copy the hands to the clipboard from HM2. In above case, the CO is a loose passive player (which would hint that he ain´t holding the nuts necessarily) while the BTN is loose agressive. Both play rather straight forward poker after flop (fold to cbet over 50, WTS 25 on the BTN and 46 on the CO).
