      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB folds, BB raises to $5.00, Hero calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($10.25) Q, 3, A (2 players)
      BB bets $6.00, Hero calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($22.25) A (2 players)
      BB bets $11.50, Hero calls $11.50.

      River: ($45.25) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $38.25, Hero calls $28.00(All-In).

      Final Pot: $111.5.


      Villain is 33/29, 3b 7%(44), 3b vs btn 17%(16), AF 7.0, 100hands.

      I believe he can 3b me very wide here so AJ plays very well ip postflop so that is the reason I just flat pre.

      Flop is standard I know he cbets his made hands and air there, so I just call.

      Turn is a nice card cuz it reduces probability of him having A type of hand. Should it be just better to shove here? I didn`t cuz I didn`t feel the need to protect too much since most possible flushes are blocked by cards on board.

      River sucks cuz I dunno if he is ever 3barrelig bluffs in 3b pots and cuz I dunno if he would do this with AT or A9 type of hand. I only need him to bluff one in four times and since he looks lagish I decided to call.

      Thanks for your help.

      Hello Gregor86,

      While he may still have FD type of hands in his range which he is going to 2nd barrel and unless I know that he is capable of barreling 3 streets as a bluff. I would even say that ship it on turn rather than Call it and then Call it on such a river as well.

      Practically there he wont anymore have a lot of bluff-hands or semi-bluffs in his range. FD completed. Better hands are possible. So I don't really see many of the hands what we beat.

      Best regards.
