      Hey guys

      BU: 24/20 after 221 hands
      FT3b: 88%
      Call 3b IP: 14 (7)

      SB: 25/3 after 77 hands

      iirc this was a capped pot after the SB 4bets (I could only call or fold).

      I was really confused but I was sure that the BU was going to call and I was going to get a great price. So easy call or easy fold?

      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 3 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $4.23 (21.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $31.11 (155.5 bb)
      BTN: $23.21 (116.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A J
      BTN raises to $0.60, SB calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, BTN calls $1.90, SB raises to $4.23, Hero calls $1.73, BTN calls $1.73

      Flop: ($12.69) Q T 5 (3 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($12.69) 3 (3 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.50, Hero folds

      River: ($12.69) 9 (2 players)

      $12.69 pot ($0.63 rake)
      Final Board: Q T 5 3 9
      SB showed T J and lost (-$4.23 net)
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$4.23 net)
      BTN showed 3 3 and won $12.06 ($7.83 net)

      Adjust your sizing preflop a bit so it's not capped when a shortie shoves if possible.. here if you make it 2.40 it's no longer capped when he shoves I think. :)

      As played, I still lean towards a fold preflop.. you get OKish immediate odds but I think you have reverse implied odds for Ax and Jx since BU can still slowplay here a lot. He would probably shove AK but AQ, TT+ I assume still flats. which already makes a big part of his range that has you in bad shape on so many flops..
