      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 9:heart: , 9:diamond:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.16, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.40, BB folds, Hero calls $0.24, MP3 calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($1.24) Q:diamond: , Q:spade: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.59, Hero calls $0.59, MP3 folds.

      What should I do in that spot. Would 16/11/8 be capable on 3betting AK? His barrels seemed so weak - less than half pot. IS he trying to extract max value from me?

      Hi,


      Yes i believe he can squeeze AK, and he'd probably make that half pot c-bet with it. Whether he'd also bet this small with QQ+ is questionable, he probably would with JJ also. With position calling once to try and see a showdown is okay.


      Hope it helps.
