      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 96 BB
      Hero (UTG): 166.4 BB
      MP: 100 BB
      CO: 112.5 BB
      BTN: 98.5 BB
      SB: 37.05 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: A:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP raises to 9 BB, fold, BTN calls 9 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 6 BB

      Flop: (28.5 BB, 3 players) Q:spade: 8:spade: K:spade:
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets 21.35 BB, Hero raises to 157.4 BB and is all-in, fold, BTN calls 68.15 BB

      Turn: (207.5 BB, 2 players) 2:diamond:

      River: (207.5 BB, 2 players) 9:heart:

      Hero shows K:heart: A:heart: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 46%, Flop 5%, Turn 0%)
      BTN shows Q:diamond: Q:club: (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 54%, Flop 95%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 0 BB
      BTN wins 197.15 BB

      MP 272 hands 13/12 3bet 6
      Bu 29/16 3bet 2, fold to 3bet 70, cold call 3bet 1/19

      Is it better fold preflop? when I called, it was totally clear to me that BU can have only QQ here, even that there are not many combos, but it is either that, or AK. But for me it is the worst option to call call call.

      Hey mla,

      Given how nitty MP is and that BTN isn't a super huge fish (can actually fold to 3-bet) I think that we should just muck preflop.

      As played, what are we hoping he bet/calls that flop with? AsK? We are crushed by his range there. He can even have slowplayed AA/KK.
