      UTG ($10)
      MP ($9.25) 26/14/9.0/29 78 hands
      Hero (CO) ($11.10)
      Button ($5.85)
      SB ($23.05)
      BB ($14.25) 36/15/1.4/11 105 hands

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , Q:spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Didn't feel to comfortable to raise AQ here but i think it's to strong to fold, so i called.

      Flop: ($1.25) J:club: , A:spade: , 9:club: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 1 fold

      Raise or Call. I decided to call. Raise/fold seemed to strong at that moment. Now i'm not sure anymore if it wouldn't have been better.

      Turn: ($4.25) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      MP bets $3.70, Hero ?

      What do you think his range is? What would you do here?

      What does "26/14/9.0/29" mean exactly?

      If hes aggressive postflop I might stay in hand but it seems like hes betting high with a good hand in order to protect it because the flop is so drawy.
      Your call might make him think you are on a draw, hence the other bets. (He might think that if you had a strong hand like a set or 2 pair you would probably have to raise because of the drawy flop)
      Looks to me like he has you beat with a set, 2-pair or AK.
      I think I would fold the turn here.

      It's VPiP/PFR/AF/WTSD. I thought this notation was kinda standard.

      hi
      it is ok to call preflop
      on the flop you need some protection for your hand so i dont mind raising this flop ( and geting it in against such an agressive opponent). the problem with raising is that you will fold most of his bluffs ( that represent a decent part of his range ) and you wont get value from another bet on the river .
      if you know that he barrels alot you can call flop and call turn and probably call some rivers too (that dont complete the draws )
      if you feel he stacks of light go for the first aproach
