      Hi,
      UTG 18/13/1.3/4.3/38/430hands
      75% call 3b/19%RFI from UTG

      3betting too marginal? normally flat vs tighter regs here, but since he is opening a bit loose from UTG & doesn't mind calling 3bets I think I have value.

      Not sure about the best postflop line.
      I can't get weaker pairs to call 3 streets, so if the flop checks through I can get one or two streets later.
      If I didn't have BD equity I probably lean more towards cbetting.

      Just valuebet turn? he could call worse (JJ,TT) but he also might stab his air?

      OTR I don't think he uses this sizing with a bluff vs my super weak range so I gave up



      BTN: $25.35 (101.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $31.32 (125.3 bb)
      BB: $70.30 (281.2 bb)
      UTG: $43.55 (174.2 bb)
      MP: $20.50 (82 bb)
      CO: $25.75 (103 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q Q
      UTG raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, BB folds, UTG calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 6 A 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($5.25) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $4, Hero calls $4

      River: ($13.25) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $10, Hero folds

      Results:
      $13.25 pot ($0.60 rake)
      Final Board: 6 A 2 9 3
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$6.50 net)
      UTG mucked and won $12.65 ($6.15 net)

      my take on it:

      utg is one of these random weak nits who doesn't really know what he is doing. who opens wider than utg from the btn?
      that first in from utg is def a sample size issue but also def means that he isn't positionally aware.

      i think you played it fine. don't level yourself against this kind of player

      I'll probably just call down after taking such a weak line. AK bets the Flop IMO, we block half the combos of AQ with 2 Qs ourselves.

      What is he really repping here?
      AQ (6 combos)
      99 (3 combos)

      I think he may be turning enough random rubbish into a bluff, like 88 or KQ. The weaker the player, the more often you can expect to see a bluff here.
