      OK, a few questions here...

      I had very few hands on villain (8) but in the few he had played he had played them very aggressively. I hadn't played at all while he was at the table.

      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG lpzmad ($5)
      UTG+1 Hero ($34.80)
      CO RearNakedCh8ke ($25)
      BTN balbo_88 ($5.49)
      SB UnLtdNick ($30.53)
      BB bbvinny2009 ($7.88)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1 Q:club: Q:spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $1, RearNakedCh8ke raises to $3.35, 3 folds, Hero calls $2.35

      1. I raise MP and he 3-bets from CO... which is better go broke preflop or evaluate, cos I was thinking that most of the time I think I am only getting called by QQ+, AK as my EP range vs unknown, so I decided to call and evaluate on the flop.

      Flop: 9:club: 2:heart: A:spade: ($7.05, 2 players)
      Hero checks, RearNakedCh8ke bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      2. The flop I play check/call cos it is an excellent board for him to c-bet if he missed, I expect him to have a range like AQ (J?)+, smaller PPs+, maybe SC's but I dunno for sure, but still it feels weak laying down QQ here. Is there an argument for a donk here? but then you are just turning your hand into a bluff, so opinions would be appreciated.

      Turn: 10:diamond: ($14.05, 2 players)
      Hero checks, RearNakedCh8ke bets $5.20, Hero calls $5.20

      3. I check, really hoping to see him check behind, and then a less than half pot bet, looks weak... am hating being OOP in this pot... is bet fold an option here? I called cos it looked weak. Maybe it was just well thought out by villain cos it left him a half pot bet on the river?

      River: 3:club: ($24.45, 2 players)
      Hero checks, RearNakedCh8ke goes all-in $12.95, Hero folds

      4. River - well he has it or he doesn't and I feel his range here is pretty polarised, but really I didn't like the call cos he 3-barrelled in a 3-bet pot on a A-high board...

      Final Pot: $37.40

      RearNakedCh8ke wins $36.18 (net +$11.18)

      Hero lost $12.05

      I appreciate all opinions on a better line here, is it after-all better to go broke preflop? while it can't be a huge mistake what would be best?

      against aggressive villain just 4-bet pf and get all-in
      They might even get all-in there with TT/JJ if they 3-bet that pf.
      c/c flop is ok, but c/f turn, players are not bluffing there and he is preparing river shove for Ax, like with AK
      Or even if he is bluffing you can´t call him down, so I would prefer folding on the turn, than making my hand into bluff catcher
