      BB: 207.25 BB
      UTG: 100.5 BB
      MP: 104 BB
      Hero (CO): 174.85 BB
      BTN: 101.5 BB
      SB: 44.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

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

      Flop: (9.5 BB, 3 players) A:heart: 2:club: J:heart:
      BB checks, MP bets 7.1 BB, Hero calls 7.1 BB, fold

      Turn: (23.7 BB, 2 players) 4:club:
      MP bets 14 BB, Hero calls 14 BB

      River: (51.7 BB, 2 players) 8:club:
      MP checks, Hero bets 25.85 BB, MP calls 25.85 BB

      MP shows A:diamond: K:spade: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 74%, Flop 87%, Turn 93%)
      Hero mucks A:spade: Q:club: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 26%, Flop 13%, Turn 7%)
      MP wins 98.25 BB


      MP 150 hands VP 20, PFR 14, flop cbet 5/10, turn 2/2

      Is call ok IP, against MP? I want his Ax hands to stay in hand.
      I am not sure if bet river is ok? I am better against AT, A9s, but it is a question if he bets turn with weak Ax. Maybe he could have fd busted which he folds. so I think the best is check back.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: While I don't mind your flop and turn bet I don't see a lot of value in a river bet.

      Villain only has a PFR of 14 and opens MP which means his PFR is probably smaller. So I don't see many worse hands that can call our bet so I would check back.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      I think your preflop call is fine. Flatting AQ vs MP open should probably be your standard play vs most opponents at 20nl.

      Flop call is fine. Turn call is fine.

      I think river bet is ok so long as you acknowledge that the range you are going to get called by is somewhat thin. You need to bet small or not bet at all. Maybe even 10-15BB would work better. Either that or don't bet.
