      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $10.38 (103.8 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $10.37 (103.7 bb)
      CO: $33.11 (331.1 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $20.81 (208.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A Q
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.26, SB raises to $0.88, BB folds, Hero calls $0.62

      Flop: ($1.86) Q 2 9 (2 players)

      Turn: ($4.44) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $3.33, Hero calls $3.33

      River: ($11.10) T (2 players)
      SB bets $4.88, Hero calls $4.88

      Results:
      $20.86 pot ($1.04 rake)
      Final Board: Q 2 9 8 T
      SB showed K A and lost (-$10.38 net)
      Hero showed A Q and won $19.82 ($9.44 net)


      Against an unknown 3bet range is this a fold PF? In position I feel AQo is good enough to call a 3bet.

      Post flop is c/c 3 streets fine?

      Yep, just fine!

      By the way, you should leave the results next time. It may influence judges!
      It should not matter what they have at this point.

      preflop is ok because of relative positions.
      sbvbu should usually have enough of light 3betting going on to make it absolutely standard to defend AQ in position, unless unknowns on pacific are mostly really passive.

      postflop is a bit awkward because of his bet sizings.
      call flop is ok, but i think the turn is a fold, his betsizings are really strong (like he is looking for protection) and he shouldn't be too bluff heavy there.

      we are behind his value range, we are blocking the nutfd (which removes some of his semibluff combos), JT got there and whatever semibluff he has should have reasonable equity.


      from his pov (with AK), his play doesn't make any sense whatsoever and is just complete spazzing. :f_biggrin:
      he can just c/f the flop. it hits your 3bet-defend range pretty well and his TP outs can easily be tainted.
      turn is also a bad card to barrel as it should improve some of your flop calling range.

      his sizing plan is also very bad for 3barreling because the stack-to-pot ratio on the river is just SO low and you will have "something" after calling the huge bets on previous streets.
      if he had bet a more standard amount on the turn he could have a better shot at making you fold the river. :f_biggrin:

      Yup river I'm never folding because the odds are way too good. Yup his play is really weird. But it's great to know that he does that :) I've seen him shove Q high FD on flop too so he really seems to be spazzy
