      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with Q:spade: , A:diamond:
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $4,05 (All-In), MP3 folds, CO calls $4,05, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($9,45) 3:diamond: , Q:club: , 2:heart:
      Turn: ($9,45) 5:diamond:
      River: ($9,45) 8:diamond:


      Final Pot: $9,45

      Should I maybe call, if I put MP1 re-raising hand Ak, JJ+ and CO calling hand 99-QQ, AK, AQ, AJ. Calculating my equity-20% and dropping, so it is clear fold:)

      Hero bets $4 (All-In), 2 folds.

      Very dangerous board. I think that betting 2,5-3$ isn´t the best thing, so I decided to push, because I thought that I might be still ahead.

      Playing AQ to a raise behind is player specific and is simply a push/fold decision. I don't think that calling can hardly ever be right.

      You can fold here, even against a Fish who might be able to push with KQ, KJ, KT, and any Pocket.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) After an all-in reraise and a call it's an easy fold with AQo although you are getting great odds. You will often be domintaed by AK and/or a high pocket pair. The best case would be a coinflip. Nice hand!

      Hand 2) Nice hand! You have to protect your hand on this board. A $2.5-$3 bet doesn't make any sense because you would be pot committed anyway.

      Good luck at the tables!
