($109) Going broke w/ AQ in an unraised pot
 
Villain is nvestr21, probably a somewhat losing player. His stats preflop are, I dunno, 20/5 or something after 75 hands or so. I have a feeling I'm gonna get berated for limping AQ here UTG; I'd like some opinions on it anyway. Is postflop OK? I'm not sure what to really put him on that beats me here other than 44 and maybe 99. Anyone push flop? Fold flop? Fold turn? Blech.

Preflop, I like to raise AQo UTG with these blinds, and fold to a reraise.

I pretty much auto make it 90 preflop. When you get the money in, in this fashion, I think your equity is going to be pretty bad. MP3 is raising through CO, Button and BB

I would raise preflop. As played I guess you lose to 99 and 44 maybe Q9s he will raises with 99 some percent of the time I guess I get it in, but I'm not thrilled.

if you limp, vs. someone with these stats, snap fold the flop.

There's a time and place for everything in poker, except limping AQo UTG full-ring with these stacks. I'd have to have a super player dependent line to ever take that line. Like there has to be people who will raise you really wide and no one who's calling that raise because it's only 5% of their stack, for this ever to be a profitable situation. And those two conditions, a few people who will raise limpers super wide and very few who will call super wide, are pretty rare in level one of MTTs.

Yeh, I am an advocate of sometimes limping, but this is a really bad spot to limp.

You can call the flop but fold turn because he's prob peeliung a lot of draws

raising preflop is better. please dont go broke here. if you thought you had the best hand you played it way too tricky. The turn is a blank and you get it all in on the turn. to do this you had to think you were best on the flop. So you should have RR the flop...
