      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      Hero (SB) ($29.38)
      BB ($29.73)
      UTG ($27.39)
      MP ($28.40)
      CO ($25)
      Button ($85.38)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 9
      3 folds, Button bets $0.50, Hero raises to $2.25, 1 fold, Button calls $1.75

      Flop: ($4.75) A, 3, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, Button raises to $7, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($18.75) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $10, Hero raises to $20.13 (All-In), Button calls $10.13

      Villain was pretty aggro playing like 80/19 or such over a small sample.

      What do you think his range in on the flop ? That min raise looks like a very strong play on a second look because:
      -if he has 2pair, sets etc strong hands vulnerable vs the flush he would fast play them and raise them bigger.

      -why would he minraise with the K :diamond: or with the :diamond: ? It doesnt make too much sense.

      - a weak made hand should only be called like always because he is folding weaker and only gets called by a better hand.

      So is his flop range heavily polarised ? flush or nothing kind of range.

      On the turn I thought that this way I can extract more value from his bluffs but am I over optimistic ?

      For me it looks like I'm better folding the flop

      if you 3-bet A9s pf you can´t really b/f that flop, so I´d played the same way b/c flop and c/rai on blank turn or other option would be just c/c him down and turn your hand into bluff catcher
