      MP: $3.81 (190.5 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $2.05 (102.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.28 (114 bb)
      BB: $1.80 (90 bb)
      UTG: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      UTG raises to $0.07, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.06, BB calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.21) 7 8 A (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG bets $0.14, Hero raises to $0.40, BB folds, UTG raises to $1.20, Hero raises to $2.21, UTG calls $0.73 and is all-in

      Turn: ($4.07) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.07) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $4.07 pot ($0.27 rake)
      Final Board: 7 8 A 3 9
      Hero mucked A Q and won $0.00 (-$2 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.07 net)
      UTG showed 7 7 and won $3.80 ($1.80 net)

      Villain is a reg, 25/23 over 625 hands, 7.6 AF.

      Is this overplaying our hand? Or can we get it in here especially against such an aggressive player?

      Is the check/raise fine or would it be better to check/call? I wanted to check/raise mostly because I was out of position and didn't really want to play out of position in a 3way pot. As played, do we continue vs his 3bet? I figured that, because he was so aggressive, he might have some draws in his range here himself like JT/T9 suited or something, and perhaps some overplayed A himself?

      Not too sure about this one...

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Is BB a fish? He appears to be given his stack size.

      Our hand is super strong so playing OOP shouldn't be a problem. By raising you take out the fishy BB and can isolate yourself against a strong range.

      So I much more prefer calling.
