      BB: 266 BB
      Hero (UTG): 100 BB
      MP: 78.8 BB
      CO: 153 BB
      BTN: 105.5 BB
      SB: 61.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: Q:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, BTN raises to 13.5 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 29 BB, fold, BTN calls 15.5 BB

      Flop: (62.5 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond: 6:diamond: Q:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 46.8 BB, Hero raises to 71 BB, BTN calls 24.2 BB

      Turn: (204.5 BB, 2 players) 8:heart:

      River: (204.5 BB, 2 players) A:diamond:

      Hero shows A:heart: Q:club: (Two Pair, Aces and Queens) (Pre 70%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      BTN shows 6:club: A:club: (Two Pair, Aces and Sixes) (Pre 30%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 190.9 BB

      200 hands VPiP 25, PFR 17, 3b 6%, 4bet0, sqeeze 14%

      Is it better fold preflop? I am never calling sqeeze with AQ, maybe only if it is AQs.

      When I hit on flop Q, I dont plan to fold, and I wanted check push to get money from his AK, or random hands which called and plan to bluff. AA, KK, QQ, anyways go all in so I dont need to worry about that, and TT, JJ he checks, but might call turn and river.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I would 4-bet even smaller than that. There's no reason to commit 29 BB there. 26-27 BB would be fine. Of course that's assuming villain doesn't have a calling range and it seems that he is a bit fishy calling A6s there.

      Postflop: As played why ck/raise? I'd bet 1/3 pot and go with the hand to induce. 1/3 pot (20 BB) can induce just as much if not more.
