      UTG bets $2.16, Hero raises to $3.04 (AI), UTG calls $0.88

      pot $8.24

      villain = 700 hands: 20/12/2,8/0

      When he calls my 3bet I don't like this flop and rather take free card. Also pot control will make my decisions easier on later streets.

      When he bets turn I'm pretty sure I have the best hand - I put him on 99+. Or AK, AQ of course.

      River comes and now I expect check from him, but he bets strong. I'm confused. I'm beating everything except AK, KK. Are we always going broke here?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Preflop: That's also why I don't like 3betting actually here, since he has so small PFR and even from UTG it's likely even smaller. We might be easily against KK+ which is gonna 4bet us and we would be in ugly shape against them. Therefore I might even sometimes prefer just Calling here and playing postflop against that player.

      As played
      Postflop: Somehow I would as well him put a very strong hand here when he picks such a line. I guess only reasonable hand which we might beat is JJ, not really sure if he even would Call with TT while being that tight. But once again why did you even 3bet, if you not really planning to go broke here on such a river, which is pretty good for us.

      Best regards.
