I see nothing wrong, move along

Why didn't he just shove? That would have been a harder question for you to answer but a great note on him for the future

He was being greedy and wanted you to call. It could be a read and a leak, if he min raises premiums again and say 4x AJo then it's a definite.

You may not encounter this player again and it's even more unlikely he'll have a premium but when you have enough notes then there will be a day that note will become useful. I kid you not. I use HEM but still keep copious notes in my game and my notes help me again and again.

If someone picks their nose and rubs it under the table it's a note.

Hey wicked76

This is fine dude, completely standard. With a 3 bb stack including your big blind Q high is good enough to call a shove from sb. There are very few hands which I will be folding here, 'the 52o' type of hands.

I know some guys that would call with any 2 cards because of the price we are getting 'more than 3.5 to 1'

Nice hand, nice suckout! 5 Stars lol!
