hi guys,
this is a probably a very basic question but is 3betting AQs from the big blind a leak?

anyways, as shown from above, anyone calling the HUGE raise on the turn, snap calling, snap folding, tanking undecided or puking 1st

Hi wikked,

On this depth of money vs. a raise from basically an unknown UTG+1, I generally prefer to flat rather than 3b AQs... it keeps the pot under control and keeps his range as wide as possible.

A big flop c-bet of 2/3rds the pot getting called on this board texture is scary. About the only legit hand that should have continued pre that we're ahead of now is JJ. Turn is nice in that it pulls us ahead of KK and AA that were playing us pre, and has given us outs against TT and 99. I really don't like the big 2nd barrel here, it just seems there's not many worse hands that will continue to give action to 2 big barrels. JJ may or may not, AA probably calls, but that's about it. Everything beating us will simply raise and put us all in. When he makes the big turn raise, it seems pretty likely we're up against TT or 99, although KcQc is not impossible, nor another AQ. Our preflop 3b has made that harder to run into though. It's a ranging and math problem now, you have 7 outs to improve over TT or 99, the math is not right to try. If you think he can have KQ in his range or be making a move sometimes, then the math swings to be in your favor.
