      UTG: 211.3 BB
      MP: 100 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: 3:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 2 BB

      SB bets 4 BB, Hero calls 4 BB

      Turn: (14 BB, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      SB bets 8 BB, Hero raises to 22 BB, fold

      Hero shows Q:club: 3:heart: (High Card, Queen)
      Hero wins 28.5 BB



      770 hands, VPiP 17, PFR 13, attempt to steal SB 17. cbet flop 64, turn 63


      Usually I was folding BB this kind of hand, but I watched video from EmanuelC16, where he said that people in general steal wide in NL20 from SB, and he is playing almost all hands against SB, because he is IP.
      So I tried it, this seems to be wrong example because SB steals tight.

      Anyway, is it ok to float this flop, because it is unlikely that sb has hit something? Is turn bluff raise ok, with OESD, and I expect him to fold often enough because he barrels a lot and is OOP.

      Hi mla,

      Looks like you reposted the AQ hand.

      Could you please update this to the Q3 hand and post when you have done so?

      So, he rarely steals in SB (17% is really LOW) and decide to defend garbage hands? Simply fold this preflop.

      If you were facing someone that steals from SB loosely then we may be able to defend a hand like this IP. You are making moves based on what a coach "said" in general. Is this a general case? No, because we actually have information on villain so we should use that rather than the general case.

      As played we have little equity in the hand on the flop and we are facing a tighter range so I would be folding. As played the turn semibluff is fine if we also plan to bet river if called (remember he can call draws that are better than our Q high).
