      3-Bet: 2.63 (at the start of this hand I saw 0 in HUD)
      Fold to 3-Bet: 75.00

      Folding AQs to 3-bet is hard, this hand is good. I flopped TPTK, so I decided to check first, my opponent quickly bets nearly pot. QQ is nearly impossible here, AK/JJ will fold there, AA and KK will go broke.

      #2 i wolduld fold fp, guy seems to be tight (pfr 9, 3bet 2,5) and u are out of position. if u decided to float pf u are commited to the pot with your TPTK, but imo c/c line on flop and turn is sligtly better

      Hi,


      Hand #1

      I don't think that guy will fold much of what he raised with to a 3bet, a lone Kd might be the only hand really. On the other side if he has a set or a lower flush and another diamond comes on the turn it'll kill both his hand and your action, shoving is fine imo.

      Hand #2

      You think he'll fold all worse hands and call it off with all better hands, so why did you shove? The only way this is ever profitable is if he can show up there with air and/or KQ, and given the stats you had on him at the time i don't think it's gonna happen often. Which is exactly why you should pitch that hand out of position to a 3bet from a tight opponent: even if you flop TPTK or TP2K you aren't happy with any of your options.

      I'd just just c/c the flop and fold to any further action, i don't expect him to bet again on the turn with hands like AK/JJ.


      Hope it helps.
