      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.67) 5, 3, A (3 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.90, BU folds, UTG2 calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($2.47) 3 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $3.24, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.47.

      When I played this hand I did not include a 3 in my opponents range and I found his push very strange. instead I did put him on AK or maybe a slowplayed A5 or A3 (which is not a big chance with 2 threes at the board).
      Or do you think this play from him was some kind of strange bluff with a weak hand which I should have called? Maybe he thught he could represent trips..?

      Hi,


      Weird line on his part but the turned 3 is a good card for you unless he's a huge calling station clinging to 3x on the flop, in which case he often doesn't take a donk/call line with that hand, as it reduces the combos of A3/33 that could beat you.

      With about a potsize bet left and an erratic opponent i'd call it off and expect to see a worse Ax that just sucks at playing poker.


      Hope it helps.
