      CO: $22.31 (111.5 bb)
      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $23.72 (118.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      CO folds, BTN raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.80, BTN folds, SB raises to $23.72 and is all-in, Hero???

      villain sb is 29/23, i haven't really got any 3bet dynamic with him. afaik he had rebuy on but i think i remember him making a couple of fishy plays. in this spot he could be super strong but i've seen a few times people ending up with some frustrated AT or something. really didn't know what to do here... is it a snap fold? his play doesn't seem to make sense

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: This one comes down to pot odds. You get X pot odds versus Y equity that we generally have.

      I would say it's a fold simply because we need upwards of 45% equity to make the call and even against a range that's super loose, with few slowplays we aren't doing that great:

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 48.04% 41.26% 6.77% AsQs
      MP3 51.96% 45.19% 6.77% QQ-66, AQs-ATs, KQs, AQo+
