      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , Q:spade:
      SB posts small blind ($0.02), Hero posts big blind ($0.05), UTG2 folds, UTG3 raises for $0.10, 6 folds, Hero calls

      Flop: ($0.22 - 4.40 bb) A:diamond: , T:diamond: , 7:club: (2 Players)

      Hero bets $0.35, UTG3 raises for $0.75, Hero folds, UTG3 gets uncalled back ($0.40)


      UTG3 was a 48/24/10 over 67.

      Preflop: for such good odds I decided to call and play it postflop. This player is loose so I don't want to 3bet bluff and play a big pot OoP.
      However, this could be a 3bet for value, right?

      Flop: c/c a good flop.

      Turn: leading out to avoid giving away free cards for FD/GS and an easy fold vs a raise.

      Preflop: A 48/24 player is a whale. 3betting here is by far the best play - You are going to get called by all sorts of worse AX hands as well as KQ/QJ/QT. If you do hit TPTK you should just be willing to play for stacks under most circumstances.

      Flop: I think you can just check/raise here immediately and play for stacks.

      Turn: I think the Turn raise is strong though, so I don't mind folding here. I think your line is fine if you think your hand is strong enough to bet 3 streets for value but not strong enough to raise and play for stacks.

      But I think that PF play is the biggest mistake since you are losing a lot of value. If you had 3bet this you can just keep firing away and never fold on this board.
