      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $1.62
      SB: $1.64
      Hero (BB): $4.35
      UTG: $3.82
      UTG+1: $4.29 - VPIP 16 / PFR 13 / AF 3 (sample: 358 hands)
      MP: $4.00
      CO: $4.13

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has J:club: J:heart:
      UTG calls $0.04, UTG+1 raises to $0.20, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.16, fold

      Flop: ($0.46, 2 players) J:spade: 3:heart: 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.44, Hero raises to $0.96, UTG+1 raises to $4.09 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.13

      Turn: ($8.64, 2 players) 8:club:

      River: ($8.64, 2 players) 4:heart:

      The question is obvious. Villain is seemingly standard regular for this limit. After his raise, his range was AK, TT+. Though it did play out the way I planned (expecting him to ship it, if he had QQ+), I am still wondering:
      Was this disguised check-raise (to represent a bluff on this board against the reg) the best play for value or should I have check-called and then reveal my hand by donk betting or check-raising on turn (depending on turn card)?

      Hero shows J:club: J:heart: (Three of a Kind, Jacks)
      UTG+1 mucks A:diamond: A:club: (One Pair, Aces)
      Hero wins $8.21

      Hello faronel,

      After his pot size bet on flop there I would very likely have played the same way. They are most often capable of going broke here. Nice hand! Other option would be to Check/Call the flop and donk turn. But the problem with such a line is that we don't really want to see any overcards which might kill the action.

      Best regards.
