      Villain is completely unknown, this was our first and only hand. Based on his stacksize, he might be a little bit fishy, but who knows.

      After he coldcalls the flop 3way, he will have a J a lot, 77-TT, AK/AQ/KQ sometimes, maybe QQ. Vs this range.

      After a turn Q, do i even have a vbet vs his calling range? I tried to give a calling range for him:

      QQ-TT,AQs-AJs,KJs+,QJs,AQo-AJo,KJo+,QJo

      vs this i have 41% equity, so it seems like i cant even bet for value with my AQ, which seems odd.

      Based on this, the river thin vbet vs KQ seems even worse. What to do here?

      Hi.

      Flop: Fold flop here, what are you hoping for? BU could definitely have something here, so could MP. While odds are being good, I would never be truly happy with my hand here even if I did hit an Ace or Queen.

      Not going to comment about the rest of the hand because you should have just folded the flop.

      Hehe, you're right:) I never ever considered folding the flop, its so dry, i felt like i'm ahead so much here, and if not, i can hit my A or Q vs a TT or something like that. TY!

      the bet actually isn't that small, it's something like 40% pot. If the opponent bet something like 20% pot then I think calling is more acceptable.
