      BTN: $45.84 (229.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      MP raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, 2 folds, BB calls $0.40

      MP was 34/26 23%rfiMP 35 hands. didnt write down BB stats :(

      not sure if i like my play here,

      thoughts: he definitely calls with weaker Qx, but its probably better to just call and then see what he does on the turn?

      Hi GxTwo,

      Preflop: MP looks fishy given the stack so I think we should 3-bet for value there.

      Postflop: Given that we are 3-handed and he bet really small I don't mind your small value raise.

      On the turn it's clear that we are almost always behind so it comes down to pot odds.

      We get 25% pot odds but really only have 8 live outs and maybe a few other outs in the shape of an Ax or even 4h. Even if we add all our outs 9 +3 we only have about 24% so we need him to shove worse which I doubt will happen often.

      so do you think we should x back the turn if we are beat. or are we only beat when he jams?

      I think he still calls the turn with weaker Qx and agree we are beat with his jam.

      The play is fine. Tptk is the nuts here vs a fish though im not too thrilled after the jam but we are committed with the nut flush draw.
