      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem
      4 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by

      CO ($11.34)
      Hero (BTN) ($4)
      SB ($12.37)
      BB ($4.32)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 4 players) Hero is BTN J:diamond: J:spade:
      CO raises to $0.16, Hero calls $0.16, 1 fold, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: 6:spade: 10:diamond: 9:spade: ($0.50, 3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.32, Hero raises to $0.74, BB folds, CO raises to $1.80, Hero folds

      26/22, CB/FCB 53/45, AF 1.6, SHD/WSDH 51/52
      Steals 35% from CO
      ~700 hands

      This is a spot for a 3bet:

      *He opens very wide and I don`t want to let him see 'free' flop.
      *Generally, it`s better to play aggressive VS loose passive OPP(vice versa)
      *By 3betting I take the initiative and I can pot control more easily.
      *I get more value

      I guess, calling works better VS regular TAG`s

      When passive villain 3bets me, I know I`m beat. His 3betting range on flop contains QQ+, 66, TT, 99, T9. Maybe some FD`s. If I ship it here, I would expect to loose about 20bb every time.

      3B pre as you said.
      Flat call his CBet because you are isolating against better hands and being 3B sucks because you can't really shove in this spot

      Flatting here really is the way to go! By raising I kill all good action.

      *If he has worse, I will go to showdown very often
      *If he bets again on the turn, I know I am beat and can save a lot of bb`s

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Preflop: Against that kind of opponent you can easily even 3bet here for value.

      As played
      Postflop: What's your point of raising and then turning your hand into bluff and folding? What was your plan with the raise? Did you just want to make him fold any worse hand and continue with better ones? Rather just Call it and reevaluate on further streets than Raise/Fold.

      Best regards.
