      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:club: , A:club:
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.75, SB calls $0.65, Hero raises to $4.00, BU calls $3.25, SB folds.

      Flop: ($8.75) A:heart: , 4:heart: , 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.00, BU raises to $21.25 (All-In), Hero calls $16.25.

      Final Pot: $51.25

      Thoughts:
      - I don't normally 3bet with AQs but since he was on the button I figured his range would be pretty wide and I would have a decent amount of fold equity.

      - Flop I catch top pair and feel I need to bet out. When he pushes I am not sure whether I should make this call or not?

      Range that beats me: AA, AK, A4, A8, 44, 88
      Range I beat: Ax, Most pairs. I think he won't push if he has missed completely. But I think he might with AJ, AT etc.

      I don't think he is doing here such a move with flushdraw so I would rather prefer to fold to his raise than call.

      Hello,
      Nice hand, well played.
      3betting AQs is good when you have position or in restealed pots like this.Be advised though, that once you hit the board you must take it all the way.Easy call for me and for any respected SH player.

      Best regards,
