      Hero (MP): $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $3.84 (192 bb)13/9/3bet7/PFagg 30-33-8/fld cbet 100/WTSD 13/441 hands
      BTN: $0.32 (16 bb)
      SB: $2.58 (129 bb) 32/9/fld cbet 50/3bet 6/110 hands
      BB: $2.38 (119 bb)
      UTG: $2.60 (130 bb) 20/16/open UTG 15/fld 3bet 43/cbet 73/301 hands

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q:heart: A:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, CO calls $0.06, BTN folds, SB calls $0.05, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.26) 8:diamond: 6:club: Q:diamond: (4 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Turn: ($0.66) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.44, CO raises to $1.80, Hero folds

      preflop : I was struggling to 3bet or not . And my thinking was that even though he isnt the tightest open range + he is not folding a lot on 3bets. My hand being suited its better to call + i dont think there are a lot of squeezers to act behind So i flat him IP (with AQo i would be more inclide to 3bet).

      flop after the PFA checks i bet for value but i plan to fold to a raise .
      on the river the same plan bet/fold . Even though when the tight CO push i cant put him on a range i mean the set 2 pair on the flop are always raising
      but i dont think this is a bluff from that guy so i fold.

      What u think overall (thought process + play? )

      Preflop: I would flat AQs and AQo. 3betting just isolates you vs the stronger parts of his range. 3betting only makes more sense if opponents behind you love to come along, or if he has a really wide range from UTG.

      Flop: I think betting is fine.

      Turn: I would bet this Turn and shove all blank rivers. I would expect him to raise most of his sets here when there are 2 flush draws out there and I expect him to 3bet preflop with KK/AA/QQ so I think we have the best hand on blank rivers and we should just bet for value.
