      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 100 BB
      UTG: 41.5 BB
      MP: 188.95 BB
      CO: 113.5 BB
      BTN: 107.95 BB
      SB: 55.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, SB raises to 10 BB, Hero calls 9 BB, fold

      Flop: (23 BB, 2 players) 6:club: 6:heart: Q:spade:
      SB bets 11.5 BB, Hero calls 11.5 BB

      Turn: (46 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      SB bets 34.1 BB, Hero calls 34.1 BB

      River: (114.2 BB, 2 players) 3:club:

      Hero shows Q:heart: A:spade: (Two Pair, Queens and Sixes) (Pre 25%, Flop 82%, Turn 93%)
      SB shows K:heart: A:heart: (One Pair, Sixes) (Pre 75%, Flop 18%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 108.5 BB

      BB 134 hands VP 22, PFR 22, F3b 60.
      SB 4 hands.

      I was not sure preflop. I can 4 bet/fold if BU goes all in, or call if SB goes all in. SB as midstacker would probably go all in 88+ and AQ+ where I am behind, and he would fold all weaker.
      I also expect him to fold PP like TT, 99 on postflop with scared cards, because my cold 3bet call looks strong.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I don't really like our cold call here unless BTN is some huge fish.

      I think we have a lot more value in just 4-betting there than calling. SB, being a midstack, can 3-bet bluff a lot there so we can just pick up 14 BB often.

      Postflop: As played I agree with our line, it's not like we are folding TPTK in a 3-bet pot with a midstack.
