      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: , Q:heart:

      SB checks, BB bets $1,50, MP2 folds, Hero calls $1,50, CO calls $1,50, SB calls $1,50.

      Turn: ($9,75) 7:diamond: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $2,75, Hero calls $2,75, CO raises to $6,00, 3 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $18,00

      I cold call pre because I think if I 3bet Im often turning my hand into a bluff which AQ is to strong to do it and it would be waste of value if he is only calling/4beting with better.

      On the flop I'm not sure what is better call or raise. Its not that drawy flop but if all of them call behind me I'm loosing equity.

      As played turn is fine I think?

      I think I'd Raise/Fold Flop as protection and to get HU with loose BB squeezing others out of the pot.

      That´s the problem if you coldcall pf as good hand as AQ.
      To me it is standard 3-bet unless I have some history that other player can 4-bet light- then I´m shipping it pf.
      I´d raise BB lead, since I think he isn´t that strong and I´d like to isolate him. When someone comes over the top them I´m folding.
      Folding turn is ok, since CO line seems very strong.
