      BB: $7.33 (73.3 bb)
      MP: $4 (40 bb)
      CO: $9.21 (92.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      MP raises to $0.30, CO folds, BTN calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($1) 8 K T (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP folds, BTN raises to $1.25, Hero raises to $2.40, BTN raises to $4.20, Hero raises to $9.70 and is all-in, BTN calls $5.50

      Turn: ($20.40) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($20.40) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $20.40 pot ($1.02 rake)
      Final Board: 8 K T 6 4
      Hero showed Q A and lost (-$10 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.30 net)
      BTN showed K Q and won $19.38 ($9.38 net)


      PF I call because AQs plays well multiway and I don't think it is strong enough to squeeze vs 2 fish.

      F is a stack off right?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: if both are fish then it's definitely strong enough to 3-bet.

      Postflop: We have a really strong draw but I would prefer a bigger raise on the flop if we go that way.

      If the fish is passive that means his raise range is strong so we can just call and play turn/river (more passive as well).

      If fish is aggro and can raise worse draws or raise/fold then 3-bet is fine.

      Hi!


      If we decide to 3-bet, we`re stacking off vs MP, right?

      As played, I would probably c/c flop.

      Yes, vs MPs 40 BB stack we are going with the hand.
