      32 hands 31/28/ 20 3b/ 29 3b from SB/ 33 fold from SB

      BB: $63.67 (318.3 bb)
      UTG: $20 (100 bb)
      MP: $20.30 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $26.19 (131 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $26.25 (131.3 bb)
      SB: $26.08 (130.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB raises to $1.40, BB folds, Hero raises to $3, SB raises to $6.80, Hero calls $3.80

      Flop: ($13.80) A 9 J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($13.80) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($13.80) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      $13.80 pot ($0.69 rake)
      Final Board: A 9 J T 3
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$6.80 net)
      SB showed 5 A and won $13.11 ($6.31 net)

      Since he's 3b so light I wanted to 4b for value. When he 5b me this amount the best hand I can hope is AK I guess. I called with intention of going broke on good flops.

      I was quite lost here... Didn't want to invest any more money since he can have KQ, Ax, JT,...I don't beat much, other than random Jx.

      If he 5b pushed I would insta called him.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: I can't see why you'd be calling the min 5-bet which is about the size of a 4-bet.

      You have 0 info on the guy (32 hands does not qualify as a sample) so betting small to induce is fine but then followup with a shove.

      When you shove QQ you are not doing it just to stack off but also to collect dead money, ie: when he bluffs. Plsus I can see JJ and AQs at the very least potentially playing like this.
