      Flop: ($0.47) 6 4 Q (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BTN bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.75, CO folds, BTN raises to $1.30, Hero calls $0.55

      River: ($14.39) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $14.39 pot ($0.50 rake)
      Final Board: 6 4 Q 9 6
      BTN showed 6 6 and won $13.89 ($6.78 net)
      Hero showed A Q and lost (-$7.11 net)

      BU is 40/10 over 73 hands

      On flop I was first thinking of shoving, after BU 4-bet, but at the end decided to go for a call. I think it was a mistake? On turn that small bet looked like a weakness to me (probably semibluff) so decided to 3bet him.

      pre flop - 4handed AQs is the nuts and should be raised for value

      flop - we can donk out for value, i dont like check raise and re raising because when we do that we isolate ourselves against the strongest of his range. bet/raising gets us against a weaker range then check/raising. and by check raising what worse is calling? as played i prefer bet/raise/raise line against his draws and worse pairs.

      turn - as played i think BU has a hand hes willing to play for stacks but if we check raise here we push him off the weaker holdings so i rather check/call.
