      MP shows 9:diamond: 9:heart: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 55%, Flop 73%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 38.95 BB

      Is it ok to 3bet AQo against MP, or EP? I dont like playing OOP, so I usually 3bet this hand.

      VPiP 25, 21 PFR, 4bet 0/9, ft3b 77%. I saw him calling 3bet KJs IP, 4betting with JJ.
      which means I should not be afraid of JJ+ here, and his range could be PP, or broadsways which I dominate because he 4bets probably AK.

      Is ok give up flop? I expect him to call here almost always, or even raise. He could call PP or broadway with fd.
      Should I bet turn larger? I was not sure about river, there are many sets possible and he would bet himself with set on flop or raise me, 44 and 66 is unlikely that he calls turn, so I think that he almost always have Ax here, so I guess I should bet/fold 3/4 pot size?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: as long as we can 3-bet AQ for value it can be 3-bet even against MP or Ep. This villain in particular seems a bit looser and you have some reads on his 3-bet/4-bet range so I think it's fine although his high fold to 3-bet tells us a different story (than him calling really wide).

      Postflop: As played I would bet the river. He usually has a showdown hand or a weaker draw when he checks the flop (not wanting to get ck/raised possibly).

      So bet turn/river.

      And also cking that flop is fine.
