      PartyGaming - $0.50 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $50.00
      Hero (SB): $73.55
      BB: $57.75
      UTG: $50.00
      MP: $88.43
      CO: $50.00

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:club: A:heart:

      fold, MP raises to $1.00, CO calls $1.00, fold, Hero calls $0.75, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($4.00, 4 players) 6:club: A:club: Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP bets $1.50, CO raises to $3.50, Hero ????


      MP 27/7 172hands
      CO 21/17
      BB 63/26 Big fish

      Preflop by squeezing I'd isolate myself against MP nut range and I think this hand is to strong to consider folding and I also expect to BB to come along very often with a range I just crush.

      On the flop Im not sure how to proceed. When I 3bet CO raise, both weaker players will fold and the reg also cannot have much hands he'd like to call a raise. What line would you preffer and why?

      Heya,

      I think your hand is very hard to play OOP here against such a tight range. I would consider 3betting just for the dead money since although MP has a tight range, he prob won't stack off all of it. If you call, you expect to hit 2p or better.

      Flop play is clear imo. 3bet and get it in.. MP bet super small, he does not have a very strong hand and CO can raise many Ax for value vs that small of a bet. If you call, you don't get any extra benefits because there are many bad cards, you want money in now, not later.
