    Hi adikumar2010! Two pieces of information that is left out are what this opp has showed at showdown and has their 3-bets always been this large? Solely based on their numbers, they look to be a very solid player (but it's too small of a sample to know for sure). With AQs, I get a very large 3-bet from what looks to be a solid opp. Since I'm out of position, I need to either 4-bet or fold here. I do not want to call and be out of position to what looks to be a solid TAG player. The problem with 4-betting is that AQs does not play well against this opp's range as their 3-bet range should be about 1/3 of their PFR (88+,ATs+,KQs,AKo), but the sample size is not large enough to show this (probably 1 in 6). Against this range, I'm a 57-43% dog, so I really do not want to 4-bet. If the opp was loose, then 4-betting is an option, but not against this opp type. The best option due to the opp type here is to fold to the 3-bet preflop. ---------------- If I saw the flop (which I would not), when I flop TPTK on a board with a flush draw, I'm making a standard 1/2 pot value bet. Calling a raise OOP, then checking the flop is a huge leak that many players have in their game and one that I want to avoid. If I'm calling pre when OOP, I need to be ready to bet just about ANY flop, let alone one that I hit. If I'm not willing to do this, I need to muck pre. There's another problem here and that is the sizing of the opp's flop bet.. it's huge, compared to a standard bet and is even pricing out a combo draw... another big red flag to fold. On the turn and river, I'm absolutely check/folding. The only reason that the opp would check the turn... is with the nuts. They intentionally priced out every draw on the flop and now check. This line only makes sense if they have the nuts. I'd be expecting the opp to show up with AhQh or AhK or AhA basically every single time here. The key in the hand is to fold AQs OOP to a 3-bet from what looks to be a competent opponent. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament.
