      I assumed this player to be solid, even only playing 50 or so hands.

      Questionable actions:
      He raises and I don't want to be super aggressive here, decide to call and see the flop in position.

      I shove the turn, thinking he has either a big Ace (possibly a small one too) or a combo draw

      Here is the hand:
      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $2.15 (107.5 bb)
      SB: $2.28 (114 bb)
      BB: $3.69 (184.5 bb)
      UTG: $3.85 (192.5 bb)
      MP: $1.75 (87.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $3 (150 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) 9 A 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $0.18, Hero calls $0.18, BB folds

      Turn: ($0.61) Q (2 players)
      MP bets $0.45, Hero raises to $2.74 and is all-in, MP calls $1.04 and is all-in

      River: ($3.59) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $3.59 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A 9 Q 4
      MP showed 9 T and won $3.36 ($1.61 net)
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$1.75 net)

      Hi TopDog,

      Preflop: Why do we assume that villain is solid? Anyone that doesn't top up or stays close to 100 BB is not a solid player.

      Postflop: As played your line is fine given that we have limited information and that I doubt villain will fold AK type hands or combo draws (KQss, etc).

      Fair point, I thought villain was relatively strong compared to all the fish. Something for me to think about though outside of the hand.

      Thanks for the help
