      CO shows a pair of aces(4 A).

      UTG2 wins with three of a kind, queens(Q Q).


      I called that preflop 3 bet for set value cause I had great implied and the size of the raise was 7 % from effective stacks.
      Postflop, after catching the set I was planning to check /raise and why not, playing all my stack.
      Since UTG played limp/ min raise preflop, on that flop I knew I was a big favourite.

      Hey Lukas,

      Nice hand and well played imo. Preflop is fine given the odds you get and 2 players in the pot (better implied odds).

      Postflop, no need to check/raise imo since although the board looks drawy, none of the draws are enough in their range, they mostly have Ax and pairs in a 3bet pot. :)
