    Hey ducttape,

    I like 3-betting preflop for value against a minopen, people tend to open wide ranges with it and at these stakes call a lot of worse even OOP.

    To answer your questions:

    1. Don't like c-betting on this texture against 2 callers. This board hits typical calling ranges because it connects so well with both suited connectors and broadways, you got to get it through 2 and when called you usually don't have many good cards to come that improve your hand or equity much.

    2. I like the river raise as you can get calls from all Qx and you are deep enough to make a raise/fold decision

    3. Against that strong of a play I think we should definitely fold. People still need to be afraid of both AQ and flushes so the only hands I see shoving here will be mostly flushes.
