      $3.60 pot ($0.16 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 K Q Q
      Hero mucked J K and lost (-$1.50 net)
      CO mucked and won $3.44 ($1.94 net)

      villain is 13/13 over 15 hands and this hand is included in those numbers so i didn't have that much info. BB is 18/18 over 17 hands and has 3bet once or twice.

      wasn't sure whether or not i could 3bet here vs an unknown. since BB is quite tight i dont expect many squeezes here so just called. if it was KJo i would have 3bet because KJs plays better postflop i think.

      BB makes the fishy minsqueeze and i don't think i can fold even though it's a bit shitty being OOP now. i wasn't sure but just called. doubt i can backraise here...

      i planned to check call and see a turn as long as there wasn't crazy action. i think if i was HU i might lead out for value and protection but i think i'd need info to see how villain would react to a donk.

      nobody has shown much interest so i just stab with my equity and i think i can check/call a blank river.. i really hate my sizing and think $1.20 would have been a better size.

      i think it's a terrible card.. and i don't think i can get any more value. i wasn't sure about what to do here and i think villain could easily have bluffed me out of this hand... what do you think? his sizing on the river is a bit extreme and i tend to give less credit but i think it's just one of those spots that sucks and i just have to fold.

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: 3-betting would most likely show us an immediate profit from the times that collect the dead money. Calling is also fine though and once we get min 3-bet it's between a fold and a call (never a reraise). Calling 3-way is fine for flush/draw possibility I'd be really careful with just one pair.

      Postflop: Checking flop and betting turn is fine and on the river villain is representing a Qx hand (like AQ) with his big bet. However I would prefer a larger bet on the turn, to about 2/3 pot.

      On the river ck/folding is fine even though he is polarized. I think that unless he is a bluffy fish this will be a value bet almost always (from Qx).
