      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.2, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.47)
      2, Q, 7 (2 players) Hero bets $0.30, CO raises to $0.6, Hero raises to $1.8, CO calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($4.07)
      3 (2 players) Hero bets $3.00, CO raises to $3.98, Hero calls $0.98.

      River: ($12.03)
      J (2 players)

      Final Pot: $12.03.

      On flop i got miniraised, he can have draw or hit the queen so he raise my standard cont bet, i raise him to show the strenght of my hand.

      On turn comes harmless card so i bet to the end.

      It is unlikely that he have set, with small pocket pair he will raise flop to the end, and with queens he will raise me on preflop.

      P.S. Assume i got reraised on preflop, how big reraise can i call with AQ to reevaluate my hand on flop, because i always call if it is $0.35 or $0.4 againgst to my $0.2.

      Got stats?


      I like the flop raise, he could do this with hands such as FD or a weak Q, minraises can mean anything. On the turn I'd shove myself since he has under a potsize bet left.

      As to your question, I don't like calling 3bets with AQ oop no matter how small the 3bet is, but I'll call a min3bet atleast, unless villain is very tight. It's just important not to overplay it later if you hit the A or Q since you could be beat.
