      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, A.
      UTG2 posts deadblind, UTG1 raises to $0.20, UTG2 calls $0.15, Hero raises to $0.65, 6 folds, UTG1 calls $0.45, UTG2 calls $0.45.

      Flop: ($2.02) 9, 8, Q (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.60, UTG1 raises to $12.75, UTG2 calls $1.71, Hero calls $3.51.

      Turn: ($21.59) 3 (3 players)


      River: ($21.59) 6 (3 players)


      Final Pot: $21.59.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(A A).
      UTG1 shows three of a kind, queens(Q Q).
      UTG2 shows a pair of nines(9 J).

      UTG1 wins with three of a kind, queens(Q Q).

      His checkraise is strong but I think that sometimes he plays the same way with AQ or a flushdraw. Is it okey to call?

      Hi,


      Sure, there is already a ton of money in the pot and you'll see worse hands like AQ in there, maybe even weaker broadways since you made the preflop 3bet kinda cheap and UTG2 at least is bad. We're not thrilled about it because the texture is really bad, but folding an overpair in a 3bet pot getting 3:1 against nl5 players one of whom is a halfstacker is just not doable, so we're calling.

      I'd go bigger to like $0.8 preflop to account for the coldcaller.


      Hope it helps.
