      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.16, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.52, BB folds, CO calls $0.36.

      Flop: ($1.08) 3, 7, 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($1.08) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.77, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.08.


      HEM info:
      CO VP$IP:20/PFR:7/AF:3/steal:39%/fold to 3bet:33%(3)/fold to cbet:20%/fold to cbet(3b pot):100(1)/ after 240 hands

      How should i play in these situations? After i started to play more aggressive and stronger poker i saw that now my biggest leak is 3bet pots where i don't have any proper strategy when to continue to play hand strong or not and mistakes in these pots are a little bit expensive for me.

      Hello valancius,

      There are actually 2 ways to play it, if you see him folding pretty often to CBets here then I'd just fire a CBet and take down the pot. But otherwise if he is not giving up that easily then your play is totally fine and doable. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
