I didnt bet out the flop, because I didnt want to get just get called, leaving me with a difficult decision on the turn, and by then a bigger pot.

I got the information i needed, but my question is could I have got away from this hand using less money?

No, you bet out on the flop because if you get raised, then you know you have a problem.

If you were looking for a fold, why not fold to his bet? You have to be more aggressive, bet the flop or c/r a real amount like 30. Folding to the shove is fine.

I really dont like the way you played this at any point. First of all, once someone raises pf and theres 2 callers ahead of you, you have to make a much larger 3 bet. I would make it around 10, otherwise youre pricing people in. After that I would lead the flop. Its not as scary as you think it is. Realistically youre beat by QQ or quads, as there wont be many if any tens in peoples ranges once you make a large 3b pf. As played I am snap calling. I dont see how you can put in almost 1/2 your stack in here and fold. You have an overpair in a 3 bet pot and are getting almost 3:1 I think, no folding.

Okay, wow, that PFR is tiny. I agree with Profish on the that. I think we're beat a lot as played and don't mind the fold to the 3-bet shove from someone with the stats he posted.

Major spew imo to fold here in a 3b pot getting these odds. No way can we profitably fold this over time.

He's getting 2:1ish, hmm. I never end up in these spots because I never check on this flop. I guess calling is okay. I think we're behind a solid chunk of the time. Although other than QQ, ATs, nothing else seems reasonable for him to raise.

Realistically, its a small sample of hands to get too caught up on the stats. If its a larger sample then you could start to question it. Yea I miscalculated though, it thought it was 100bb stacks. I still cant really see a fold though. Im sure youre going to see AQ in here and possibly even KQ. The way I see it is that besides the small sample size, this guy got some good odds to come along so now he is. What it comes down to is raising a bet in a 3b pot with the intention of folding when holding a hand like this is just terrible. The only thing I could reasonably fold here is air or an underpair, but Im not raising an underpair so only air is a fold for me.

Intention of folding? I don't quite follow that logic. I had the intention of winning.

My main question was how i could get the information i needed as cheaply as possible, and leading on the flop probably would have been wise. The villain is a tight mouse by his stats, and my observation. I put him on Queens Or Aces or AK.

I reraised to find out which it was. And it was queens as he showed.

My AF on the flop is 5.5. I dont know why i didnt bet the flop, For some reason I had a strong sense my man had queens. You argue the reraise preflop was small, but according to my read on the guy it was big enough. He wouldnt have called it, with anything but a very strong hand.

And i wanted some action! The remaining players where not the type to cold call a bet like that, unless it was really multiway. the Cutoff was my target here, he was a lagtard.
