      Poker Stars $50.00 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players - View hand 256592

      BTN: $95.15

      SB: $51.50
      BB: $16.05
      UTG: $39.50
      UTG+1: $81.15
      MP1: $9.25
      Hero (MP2): $81.45
      CO: $9.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP2 with A :club: A :spade:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $2, 1 fold, BTN calls $2, 2 folds

      Flop: ($4.75) 8 :heart: 5 :spade: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BTN raises to $7.50, Hero calls $5

      Turn: ($19.75) 4 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($19.75) 2 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $11.00, Hero calls $11

      I dislike this way of playing, giving away iniative but by the Turn check behind, I think I have the best hand. Question is if I want to Bet/Call or just c/c

      I think as soon as I bet, I woul dhave to bet/fold River although his line doesn't really make sense

      So actually I was thinking of 3bettin gpostflop and getting it in, I think i should be more aggressive in these kind of spots against high % raise CB guys

      I think 3-betting/getting all-in on that flop is mistake.
      he won´t really raise/shove there with 99-JJ, maybe he do that with QQ/KK, but i´d expect him to flatcall these hands anyway
      so that leaves b/c flop and decide on the turn
      you can lead out on the turn, but how big pot you want to play against that player? I think turn should be b/f, although you sometimes can see player raising with 66 for example since you take b/f line there always with overpairs.
      So I´d rather keep pot small and take c/c line.
      you can bet out river and have to fold if he raises, since don´t think players are turning their pp-s or draws into bluffs too many times, although I´d likely take another c/c line to gain information which hands he is raising on the flop to play better next time against his raising range on the flop.
