      You 3bet to half your starting stack size -----> Push all-in instead. You are pot committed anyway. (on Flop pot is too big to fold, You're going broke whatever happens)

      It's actually not that bad if you don't get called, as AQ is not a huge favourite to many hands (Actually only against the ones it's dominating), so collecting the blinds is great. After flop it's an easy push and you were actually ahead a lot on the flop so it was a profitable move.

      Just put the hands and flop in the equilator and you will se you were a huge favourite.

      P.S. Usually you don't show opponent's hands in the sample hands section because it can distort the view on what was the right play.

      thank you for the comment

      i agree that AQ doesnt beat a lot :( in the future i will just try and take the blinds.

      the results are hidden and u need to select the text only if u want to see it! so i guess judges and other people dont select the text if they want to see the results?? :f_biggrin:

      Hi Wow,

      Push preflop since you want to avoid trouble postflop, its easy and +EV :)
