Hello,
Was this right play? V is unknown . It seems good pot odds but I'm OOP and it will hard to get value if I hit TP and I might loose easily after such action .
Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Shichi,

Initially either flatting or 3-betting can be valid options here. With some info about villain's opening frequencies from the cut off and how they respond to 3b's, one or the other could become the clear best play, but with no reads I think it's fine to go with whatever your normal style is in this spot. Sizing on the 3b is a bit big, which may tighten his continuing range, so when we get continued action we have to be cautious imo.

Villain 4-bets us and uses a very nice sizing to induce calling and 5-betting mistakes. Now would be a good time to fold imo. Even readless, this sizing indicates to me a likely very strong hand, all of which is crushing AQ and our hand plays really poorly OOP, without initiative, and vs a strong range that dominates us.

Villain dependent but my default would be to fold.

There are some villains however that I would 5b shove this on due to history.

I didn't met villains at this limit against whom shoving AQ would be profitable,even with QQ there's a lot of questions .
