      Villains stats: 47/6/inf during 17 hands, 3bet 0.

      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      BB ($10.72)
      UTG ($24.72)
      MP ($6.39)
      Hero (CO) ($29.59)
      Button ($17.26)
      SB ($16.84)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.30, Button calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 10, J, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, Button raises to $1, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $2.40, Hero calls $2.40

      River: ($7.55) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $6.50, Hero ???

      Flop: I bet for value and face a minraise which basically means very strong hand or (sometimes) a bluff. I don't want a bluff to get away and also don't want to go broke with only one pair being this deep, so I smooth call for pot control.
      Turn: Blank comes, I continue to pot control and face pretty much expected aggression from the villain. Also there is still some possibility for a bluff, but now I consider that he actually has a real strong hand and I'm probably way behind.
      River: Another blank, I pot control again (being OOP sucks a lot), and get a really serious bet. I guess there's no chance my AA are good, easy fold?

      Hello Bliausmas,

      When he decides to bet near pot on turn, I'd rather just fold it and give up. He will more often have a pretty strong hand there rather than a draw or weak hand. Often times when they have a draw there, they are just Checking behind, so we can likely see only good combos which bet this way. Also he is unknown. And as played river is a fold as well for me, seems like we are beat. :(

      Best regards.
