this is a [censored] spot, AQ can be a pain to play. anyhow, i think without reads that villain is a maniac you should let this one go because he isn't doing this with AJ, or &lt;=KK. does anyone have a different strategy for play on this? in 3b pots against normal players, AQ is often a bluff catcher isn't it?

Tough spot. He's cold called our 3bet OOP which is kinda scarier than him 4 betting. I hate AQ in pots like this, you're gonna beat KK-99, lose to AK and AA, and tie AQ. Him c/r this flop w/ any of those pockets is a bold play. I think I'm calling once and hoping for a hopefully free showdown, which we should get if he's on KK or less. Folding here is also OK. Again some sort of stats on villain would get you better responses.

Hm - I think a check behind might be nice actually. FWIW if we bet flop I'd make it closer to pot ~85%.

Well if I check, that will definatly show weakness, and as you all said my hand is weak here. But if I do check, it gives the pot control his way, and he can be betting with JQ sooted or something, I have no clue where I would be.


Now if I check, he bets 18 or something and turn was a 5, now what am I doing there? Do I call the $40 bet there?

History is probably the most important piece of information here, of which you have provided none.

Um, would've you like him to be betting QJs on the turn? Why not give him the chance to bluff. Basically no hands you beat are going to be in this hand to call your flop bet. You're either way ahead of way behind. So check the flop and get more value from 99-KK, or let him bluff whatever trash you have. Betting just gets played back at by better hands and lets worse hands off the hook.

Also reads help :P
