      Hero (BB): $25 (100 bb)
      UTG: $23.20 (92.8 bb)
      MP: $40.44 (161.8 bb)
      CO: $57.43 (229.7 bb)
      BTN: $25 (100 bb)
      SB: $16.50 (66 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:heart: A:spade:
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.25, 2 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $1, MP calls $0.75, SB folds

      Flop: ($2.25) 3:spade: J:club: 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.45) 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($4.45) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.30, MP calls $3.30

      vs 92/8 12 h WTS 27 I think vs those guys when they call my 3bet I just should play x/f when I miss something like AK/AQ because they tend to calldown with most PP. What do you think about it?

      Hi.

      Preflop: I think your raise size is way too small. Raise it up to at least 5 or 6 BB to ensure that you get to isolate one opponent. Besides MP is a huge fish so you should be aiming to raise much larger (7BB perhaps) to gain much more value preflop.

      Flop: Cbet is fine vs an unknown but vs someone who plays so many hands preflop I think Ace high probably plays fine with a check/call. Basically here our relative hand strength goes up significantly when our opponent just has almost any two cards preflop and Ace high is going to be the best hand really often.

      Check/fold is definitely the worst play when our hand is so strong here, relative to our opponent's range. He's gonna have K7o Q6s 56o type of hands so often and we are ahead of all of those hands.

      As played after cbetting flop, I think it's played fine.

      Thanks.

      ok thanks. Vs those guys it's better to just play it passively? x/c once and x/f if he fire again right?

      I'll probably c/c twice by default cos I think these days even the fish know how to bet twice with their air but they are mostly reluctant to fire the River.

      Of course if we have an ugly turn card like the King I wouldn't mind folding as much. Or if we knew that the villain was really passive then I would just c/f the Turn.
