      -----

      Preflop: I called because CO called and I could hit a big hand in a 3way pot. If it were AQo I probably would have folded.

      Flop: decided to x/c as UTG's cbet seemed weak. Plan was to x/c turn and x/f river if he continues to barrel.
      Turn: was even thinking about x/r, but now it does not seem like a good option as no worse hand would call me.
      River: I bet 1/2 pot to get called by KK, JJ, TT etc. who were bluff catching. Maybe some weaker Ax or Qx. When I got raised I was thinking whether to call or raise as my hand is too strong to fold. I opted to call again as I don't think AK would call a 3bet and there aren't many A8, A6, A5 in his range. I could also be behind AA and QQ.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: Are either of them fishy? If not calling is fine.

      Postflop: QQ is the most likely hand when it comes to value however it's only one combo. I don't think AA or AK or any other 2p hand would check back that super wet turn.

      And if he is bluffing he won't call much anyway so just calling there is fine.
