Active player min-opens from the HJ with 22bb stack. We are sitting OTB with 28bbs and a pretty looking hand

Both blinds are tight and I don't expect them to do anything crazy. Do you like the call preflop with QTs? Would you consider 3betting?

Would you do anything else post flop as played?

Hi George

Calling is fine We have the button and we have a hand that plays well post flop, I prefer calling villains raise rather than 3 betting because if we 3bet we're giving him the option to shove it in our face and that's not what we want, especially with a hand as playable as ours.

Calling c bet is standard, turn card is a tricky one and I think that either calling/shoving is fine. I don't think we have much fold equity when we shove the turn because of how many chips villain has committed to the hand but if we've seen him bet/fold in similar spots like this one previously then I'd go for it. As played we have to fold the river which sucks.

Cheers, Chris.
