  • AQo, board double pairs on river, good call?

    Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q of hearts A of spades
    Hero raises to $0.12, MP folds, CO calls $0.12, BTN raises to $0.28, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.16, CO calls $0.16

    Flop: ($0.90) T of clubs 5 of clubs T of spades (3 players)
    Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks

    Turn: ($0.90) K of spades (3 players)
    Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks

    River: ($0.90) K of diamonds (3 players)
    Hero checks, CO bets $0.86, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.86

    I have no stats on the other players, was playing hudless.

    The way the hand played, I didn't think he had a T or a K, he would surely have bet either a K or a T on the flop or turn.

    On the river, it looks like he is trying to steal the pot, because no-one else has contested it on flop or turn. I felt that I was at worst splitting the pot here.

    Thoughts on how I played the hand?

    Fold pre?

    Fold river?

    Hi bhoy,

    Fold preflop OOP with AQo, especially multi-way... pretty sure you can not play this spot profitably without any reads at all.

    Don't think we can rule out a slow played T, 55, or K so easily without reads tbh, it's multi-way and he's OOP vs. the preflop 3-bettor. KQ might check the turn planning to c/c (fearing AK), then bet the river.

    It could be a bluff. It's probably not worth it to find out for a full put sized bet into 3 players, one of whom rates to have an ace and feel inclined to look him up.
