      UTG: $42.31 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 13, 3B: 8, AF: 9.0, Hands: 38

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BB with Q :diamond: A :heart:
      UTG raises to $1.50, 4 folds, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) Q :spade: 2 :diamond: 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3, UTG raises to $7.50, Hero calls $4.50

      Turn: ($18.25) 2 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $10.00, hero ?

      utg was an unknown at the time, no hands on him
      is the raise on the flop too ambitious ? how should we proceed after his flop 3b?

      thanks

      Hey VasiliZaitsev,

      Just to put things in perspective the preflop call OOP is super borderline here with AQ. UTG is playing tightish and you are unlikely to be a favourite vs his range, possibly a slight dog if he's opening a 10% range.

      Flop raise makes zero sense on this texture. Best option will always be to flat.

      UTG's 3bet is very questionable. Yetti theorem says he is bluffing. I'd usually just give him credit and muck AQ, not giving him credit for realising that 3betting KK/AA/sets is a bad play here. If you did continue the best option would be to call down and never raise.
