      fold, fold, CO raises to $1.75, fold, fold, Hero calls $1.25

      FLOP ($3.75) 9:spade: T:diamond: 2:spade:

      Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero raises to $9.50, CO calls $6.50

      Villain is 23/13/ 3.6 (AF) 87%cbet (226 hands)
      2,3 (3bet)

      Preflop I chose to just call because I'm ahead of his range. Of course I can also 3bet and maybe it's a better idea if he also calls with weaker hands.

      How do you play postflop?

      [SIZE=14] BB vs CO I think this should be a standard 3 bet as:
      -we're still pretty happy to get it AI pre.
      -villain should still call with a lot of weaker hands.
      -if we just flat it's pretty hard to play it OOP when we dont hit against a competent player.
      -if you want to 3bet a polarised range in this situation I think that AKs is in your nut hand range and I would be more inclined to flat with JJ-99 as with these hands we still have some showdown value to build our play on on the flop.

      Also I would like to make the c/r bigger on the flop to 11 or such to build the pot up and make our future play a little bit easier. [/size]

      I agree on the preflop part.

      Be more specific =)

      I think that a bigger c/r will make us play the hand easier because b/f is not any more an option if we continue to be aggressive when we miss out on the turn and also we become more unpredictable because we will make it bigger with a set on the flop as well.

      If you make it that size with a value hand as well then it's ok ,I guess, but I think it should be larger on such a draw heavy board.

      if you don´t 3-bet pf, then your play postflop is fine
      Since A is scary card for you I don´t mind c/rai since you don´t afraid anything and I would doubt he would call you down smt like JJ if you bet turn and shove river
      So better let him to bluff and then shove for value
