      Hi there!

      I am not sure about that play. Should I rather fold preflop?


      His stats are:
      VPIP: 78
      PFR: 0
      Agg: 0,9
      Hands: 18

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6, 7.

      Flop: ($0.8) 3, J, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.57, BB calls $0.57.

      Turn: ($1.94) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($1.94) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.38, BB raises to $2.76, Hero calls $1.38.

      Final Pot: $7.46.


      I think that the flop continuation bet is ok, but what about further play? Should I bet the turn? Should I fold to his river 3bet?

      Hello Alleen86,

      Preflop: Against such a loose opponent you might even take a tighter range to steal against him. We just don't hit often enough to play such hands that profitable, unless he is easily giving up on flops that he doesn't hit.

      As played
      Flop: As you wanted to steal preflop then this kind of flop is likely also a very good one to CBet.
      Turn: Nah, ain't worth to continue anymore if he decided to Call us on flop, he could easily have here the 8 or whatever which he is likely going to continue.
      River: Since he sometimes as well might raise us with any kind of 2pair/sets and etc hands then I think I'd also Call there, kinda hard to put the opponent on the backdoor flush everytime without any reads or stats.

      Best regards.
