      Hand 1: 3bet PF to avoid this, as played it's foldable, lot of strong hands in his range here, set, 2 pair,(combo)draw,...
      Hand 2: wait, wat?is foldable as well but I would have a hard time doing that too :)
      Hand 3: don't know about turn, you could fold it there because turn raises are usually better hands than TPGK, as played obvious fold to river bet, don't risk your entire stack there imo

      in the future post hands in seperate topics and leave the results please :)

      Hi Brejk,

      1) 3-bet/shove preflop. As played, I'd fold to the shove.

      2) "Never go broke in a limped pot without the nuts" would apply here. It's a dry, low flop, so you'll pretty much always be beat here => fold to the 3-bet

      3) 3-bet preflop every time with AQs at a 4-handed table. As played, play for pot control.

      in the future post hands in seperate topics and leave the results please smile
      Regards,
      Craig
