      iPoker - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $5.80
      SB: $4.02
      BB: $2.36
      UTG: $4.32
      UTG+1: $4.00
      MP: $4.48
      MP+1: $2.27
      LP: $4.01
      Hero (CO): $5.21

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has A:spade: K:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.16, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.16, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.38, 2 players) 8:spade: 6:heart: 4:heart:
      UTG+1 bets $0.28, Hero calls $0.28

      Turn: ($0.94, 2 players) K:diamond:
      UTG+1 bets $0.70, Hero raises to $3.00, fold

      Hero shows A:spade: K:heart: (One Pair, Kings)
      Hero wins $2.19

      On the flop I knew that villain was cbetting almost all the time, so I figured I probably still had the best hand and if not, I had decent implied odds and 7 outs inc the backdoor draw. Real question is on the turn, should I have simply called and tried to gain more value on the river or should I have 3bet a lower amount? In hindsight im figuring the only hands hes calling such a large raise with are AK/AA/KK or a low set which im always losing money against. Any opinions?

      Hello esuohdla,

      The problem with raising the turn is that you are just making most of the hands to fold. Even a PP something like JJ/QQ wont continue there. That's I'd be more inclined to just Call it on turn.

      Best regards.
