      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:diamond: A:club:

      UTG calls 1 BB, fold, UTG+2 raises to 2 BB, Hero calls 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls 1 BB

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 3 players) 6:heart: 2:club: Q:heart:
      UTG checks, UTG+2 bets 2 BB, Hero raises to 6 BB, UTG calls 6 BB, fold

      Turn: (21.5 BB, 2 players) 3:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      I just called on preflop...which I don't think was a good play. Is it better to raise then fold to a reraise there? I think I was worried about the typical limp with AA UTG then reraise.

      I think the reraise on the flop was good. I thought I most likely had the best hand and didn't want anyone to draw to a flush.

      I checked when the flush hit...was hoping to check down.

      When he overbet the pot....wasn't sure what to do. I thought only a flush beat me. I called.

      River: (21.5 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:
      UTG bets 31 BB, Hero calls 31 BB

      UTG shows 8:heart: A:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 31%, Flop 36%, Turn 100%)
      Hero mucks Q:diamond: A:club: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 69%, Flop 64%, Turn 0%)
      UTG wins 80.5 BB

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: I would recommend 3-betting preflop for value and to prevent a very big multiway pot. The guys behind you are getting really good pot odds to call.

      Postflop: As played I would raise bigger on the flop and bet/fold the turn (2/3 pot).

      As played I think river is closer to a fold as he can have any flush that was going for a ck/raise on the turn.
