Default Re: $11 1st hand AQ v minraise

Bet the pot on the flop. The purpose of poker is to force your opponents to make mistakes. By betting the pot, you either make them fold a draw and take a nice pot, or you force them to make the mistake of drawing to a straight or flush.

You bet small, BB maybe calls on a flush or straight draw, UTG could call with two overcards given the new pot odds (small bet, call, great odds).

The turn comes, giving you a double hit of not only an overcard to your pair, but also putting the flush draw. However, 40 into an insanely large pot is not enough to make you fold. So I'd call and evaluate the situation on the river.
