This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: AQo vs 3Bet within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; should have folded pre for value? appreciate any help.
partypoker, Hold'em No Limit - $0.01/$0.02 - 5 players
Replay this hand on CardsChat
UTG: $3.01 (151 bb)
CO (Hero) shows A♣ Q♦ (two pair, Queens and Nines) (Equity - Pre-Flop: 28%, Flop: 20%, Turn: 11%, River: 0%)
BB wins $5.18
We cannot be folding such a strong holding preflop. Our options are to 4-bet in a frequency and call in another frequency, villain dependant.
Postflop is very default except for the river. There are just a couple of hands pushing OTR, and given Villain's OOP line we can be folding from time to time, although calling OTR isn't the end of the world.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: AQo vs 3Bet
Given your stack size, the river bet is effectively just under pot.
CO vs Blinds ranges are going to be wider, so you will need to widen your calling range in these spots.
Could villain be doing this with worse Queens? Possibly. Could villain be doing this with some busted gutters that didn't get there? Again, possibly.
I think given the dynamic between CO and Blinds, your play is fine.

If you think villain would 3bet and triple barrel 65s and JTs , then river call is fine.
But I think you can find better spots in NL2.

Hello, definitely call 3bet pre flop with AQo is a standard. So IMO you shouldn't fold this hand pre flop. As played - opponent seems to be good player on this table, because he has the biggest stack. Very helpful for me will be some informations about opponent, with what cards he built this stack. Without reads I think we can't fold TPTK. If I have informations about opponent that he won pots with some strong cards I think we can wonder about fold on the river. I don't think so that opponent will play bet on the river with Ako, because at micro limit is more possible that he would play check on the river as a giving up his hands and bet on the river it would be a little risky move.

The call 3bet is very standart,post flop is were the info u could have come, is he a very agro players? he likes to stack himself with Tpair? iff i dont have any info about this a fold turn,there is when u have to make a desition(because most players iff they bet T,end betting river and much more when vilain is OOP) so on turn or you fold or u call any river.
I dont like to stack miself wiTh Tpair Tkick when i donk know vilain, so i call Cbet,and fold turn.
Your preflop call is pretty standard, but you have to think about his 3betting range, if we consider that he's 3betting with the top of his range then he's away ahead of AQ and we should fold unless if it's suited.
On the flop: Q 9 7 there is; 1 combination of QQ 3 combination of 99 6 combination of KK and 3 AA / i didn't count the 7s cause if he had 77 he probably just complete and see the flop.
So all of that in mind you have to minraise the flop to see where you are in the hand. if he just call, he'll probably not bet the turn, and you could XB to see the river hoping that your hand will improve.
If he 3bet you on the flop, you fold and seek a better spot...
