      Villains stats:
      BU: 75/70/2.3 during 21 hands, 3bet 28.6.
      BB: 30/22/1.6 during 90 hands.

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

      Button ($13.24)
      SB ($9.98)
      BB ($6.65)
      UTG ($13.82)
      MP ($5.65)
      Hero (CO) ($18.35)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.30, Button raises to $1.05, 1 fold, BB calls $0.95, Hero calls $0.75

      Flop: ($3.20) K, A, J (3 players)
      BB bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55, Button calls $0.55

      Turn: ($4.85) 9 (3 players)
      BB bets $4.85, Hero calls $4.85, 1 fold

      River: ($14.55) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20 (All-In), Hero calls $0.20

      It sucks to be oop having AK and facing a 3bet, but BB (shorty) cold called. Well I have position over him and decide to give it a try. I don't want him to fold, also I don't want to fold my AK here. Would a shove be better against such a loose 3better?
      Postflop: Well again, I don't see many hands that my opponents would go broke with, so I take passive line.

      Hello Bliausmas,

      Preflop: Even if he has such a 3bet I don't really like the 4bet there just for the reason that we don't have that many hands. And sometimes I even just fold the hand while having it off-suited and it doesn't play that well anyways in multiway. Although it's doable.
      Postflop: I guess I'd just raise it on flop, although just Calling should be somewhat fine if you expect the PFR to raise there. Otherwise I'd just get it in on turn vs BB stack. Not much to do anyways against his stack. He may even easily have worse 2pairs, worse aces or whatsoever.

      Best regards.

      Yeah, I expected for original raiser to show some aggression with top pair/two pair, unfortunately he didn't. And shorty had AJ here, so pretty standart I guess.
