      Wasn't sure what to do here agianst this opponant. If he had raised 4bb like normal would have folded. He raised different amounts each time. Was the cold call pre-flop a mistake? Should I have checked behind on the turn? Min raise confused me, then I mis-read not Cbetting as weakness. Where did I go wrong pre-flop or post-flop?


      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50, 3 folds, BB calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($1.6) 7, A, 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB folds, UTG2 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.6) 9 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $2.45(All-In), UTG2 calls $2.45.

      River: ($8.5) 3 (0 players)
      UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.05.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(A Q).
      UTG2 shows three of a kind, aces(A A).

      UTG2 wins with three of a kind, aces(A A).

      Hi Jonnyquest,

      Removing results from your HH gives you the optimum verdicts from players :)
      The results doesn't matter, it is all about how you played the hand.

      I generally ignore minraise on micro limits so I reraise this all-in since a genuine 3bet raising size would be $1.75-ish and since you have $3.95 left, you are committed postflop anyway.

      Then I want to shove it preflop to see 5 cards and possible have the best equity there
