      CO: $25.71 (102.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $25.25 (101 bb)
      SB: $33.77 (135.1 bb)
      BB: $24.86 (99.4 bb)
      MP: $27 (108 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J:diamond: T:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, SB calls $0.48, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.45) T:heart: J:heart: A:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1, SB raises to $2.88, Hero calls $1.88

      Turn: ($7.21) 7:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $4, Hero folds

      Results: $7.21 pot ($0.37 rake)
      Final Board: T:heart: J:heart: A:club: 7:club:
      Hero mucked J:diamond: T:club: and lost (-$3.48 net)
      SB mucked and won $6.84 ($3.36 net)

      SB is 25/16 over 85 hands. 13,6 3bet, 6 AF. He was playing on 2 of my tables. We had some dynamics. He is the same opponent form the KK hand where I 4bet him SBvsBB and ch/f AQxs board. He also bet/4bet/call TT UTG vs MP(me).

      On the flop i bet for value. His raise is weird because he can`t have that much hands. I assume he is 3betting TT+, AJs+,KQs and maybe AJo,KQo. The problem is that i beat only bluffs with mu hand ( I doubt he is raising A2-A9 for value unless they are :heart: and he can`t have AQ+). Maybe 98s he decided to play aggressively OOP. And if i raise the flop he will probably fold everything worse and continue with hands that beat me or have very good equity. So i decided to call and see a turn.

      The turn isn`t great (98 got there) but vs 1/2 pot bet and the dynamic i think i have to call here and probably call river that isn`t A/K/Q/ :heart: ?

      Hello AchillesBG,

      If I am calling the flop then I would most likely continue also on the turn with my hand rather than fold it. We can still reevaluate the river as well. Therefore with your play rather Bet/Fold the flop.

      Best Regards.
