      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$1.80 net)
      MP mucked and won $3.73 ($1.93 net)

      Villain is 29/14/0.0 A.F 1.0 over 21 hands.

      PF: Raised for value

      Flop: I raised BB's weak bet for value & protection against Qx hands, worse PPs and some flush draws.

      Turn: 5x beats me but I can still get value from Qx, worse PPs. I also have the A high Flush draw now.

      River: Sucks. I'm thinking now I should have shoved and he might call Qx. But is that thin? When he bets like that, almost putting me all in I really don't know. I don't think he will bet Qx or any hand that I beat.

      He feels quite strong, since he called my UTG raise and then subsequently called my 2 barrel. I feel he at least has a strong Q here, and don't think he will bet it on the River. Thus I felt I was beat.

      Sucks if I got bluffed..

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: 3-way we can raise this flop larger to about 0.6 or so.

      Qx is rarely ever folding so just bet big on the turn and shove river. We also block a ton of FDs that villain can have.
