No idea how this hand should have played out...

A) Raise the flop?
C) Do I have fold equity by shoving the turn?

Please comment!

Hi dirt,

I don't really like flatting pre personally. The opener is a nit, and the 3-bettor is somewhat aggro over a small sample but not out of line, so I think AQ is playing pretty poorly OOP without the initiative here. Maybe I'm nitty, idk... I would prefer to 4b/fold it (to about 2.20), or just fold it directly. That may seem tight, but against 2 ranges that aren't wide I don't think we're making money calling.

As played I would check-shove this flop. We can have TT, and in buttons eyes maybe 33 and KTs, and we have a lot of equity on this flop, both fold equity against QQ- and hand equity when called to improve to the best hand.

The problem with calling is this blank turn. We don't really have the price to check/call again if he shoves, and we don't have fold equity donk shoving ourselves as this line looks like BS on a wet board (I would snap you with QQ here in villain's shoes).
