      Villains stats: 19/14/3.0 during 22 hands. Now I see his 3bet is 10, but at that time I'm pretty sure it was 0.0 :)

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

      BB ($4.10)
      UTG ($17.17)
      MP ($10.83)
      CO ($7.63)
      Hero (Button) ($12.31)
      SB ($10.05)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, A
      3 folds, Hero bets $0.30, SB raises to $1, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.10) 9, A, K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($2.10) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

      River: ($4.90) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $4, Hero raises to $8

      Preflop: I flat call because I don't want to go broke for some reason with AK here (opponent doesn't seem a big fish), plus I have position.

      Flop: I pretty like this flop but I don't see any hands he calls me with if I donk out after his missed cbet. AQ-AJ would bet, against AA-KK we are going to go broke on later streets anyway, so I check behind.

      Turn: Pretty muck blank. He might be bluffing, because I still don't see any hands that he would play that way.

      River: Bingo, that's what I wanted.

      Was my thinking proper in this hand?

      Hello Bliausmas,

      Preflop: Kinda close actually, although doable. Sometimes even against more tighter guys and unknown I even prefer folding.
      Postflop: Your line is totally fine, although I'd even like sometimes raising right on turn to get value from any kind of flushdraw hands, or maybe even get directly in our money vs an Ace. Otherwise I'd also ship it on river.

      Best regards.
