      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$13.59 net)
      CO showed 2 3 and won $25.51 ($11.92 net)


      So first mistake, probably should not have called the 3b oop, should really be 4b or fold right?

      How about the hand as played? I Think I should have raise the turn looking back

      Hi Bennisboy,

      Preflop: It should not be a call here unless we are way ahead of his range and even then we have a hard time playing OOP with this hand.

      So 4-bet as a bluff (if he 3-bets often) or just fold.

      Postflop: As played why not raise the turn (or even the flop)? His pairs are hardly folding and heart draws are most likely continuing too

      Yep, definitely should have been 4b or fold PF

      I agree really should have raised the turn, was trying to slow play but really shouldn't have, was afraid of scaring the villain off.

      Do you think the river stack off is acceptable?

      To be honest I don't like our line of ck/call, ck/call and then donk (leaving little behind) on somewhat of a scarecard. However I still think that QQ+ can make a crying call.

      My preferred line would be to ck/raise small on the flop (we don't rep much and people call lighter) and bet turn/river.

      Alternatively, if we expect villain to barrel often ck/call flop and ck/raise turn.
