  • 5nl zoom playing AQo OOP

    In the dark when it comes to playing hands like AQ and KQ oop, especially vs early-mid position opens This player was 35/24 wtsd 43 68 hands flop cb 83, turn cb 33 (1/3) I called to float oop which doesn't seem to be too profitable, realised I don't have a plan. What would it be with a hand like this? should I 3bet it vs an early position range or flat and x/f when missed(which doesn't look nice either).

    PF: Personally, I think flatting or 3bet are both good options. 3betting might be better. I wouldn't be too happy to see an ACE or a QUEEN. We can't take too much heat with AQ. Fold to a 4bet.

    If we had AQs I would just flat in the blinds vs all opens. (AQs is much easier to play with high cards and flush potential, also if we 3bet AQs and the villain 4bets, it sucks because now we have to throw away AQs. I don't mind throwing away AQo.

    OTF: fold to the villains cbet.

      I think calling flop against a wider range seems alright with AQ on this board as many worse hands may c-bet. Against an EP open I would rather fold here.

      As played I like your turncall and river check, as villains may be continuing to bluff or valuebet thin. Once you get to the river and suddenly start to feel bad about calling I guess it shows that the flop call wasn't optimal.
