      River: ($3.22, 2 players) 3:spade:
      Hero bets $4.20 and is all-in, BTN calls $4.20

      opponent very loose and agressive 60/35/2.5 16% 3bet. 250 hand sample cought him one time bluffing and he cought me bluffing one time making light calls

      Mby 4-bet before flop?
      On flop top pair, was planning to make check raise if CO check and BTN bets but he checked.
      Turn - top two. Now I lead hoping he has some A. He calls and on river I shove because he is calling almost any A.

      He had
      99

      Did I play well and just was unlucky he had that hand or I did something wrong?

      Hello daun666,

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of Calling here vs 3bet. You way too often dominated. Standard fold for me.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add. Hope him to have any kind of worse Ax hand which might pay you.

      Best regards.

      But isn't ATs good enough against 16% 3bet? And all of this 3bets was made in LP. Isn't it pretty wide range?

      You're out of position and against two players who possibly have a strong hand.

      If it had been him 3betting YOUR raise and you calling (or in that case maybe even 4 betting?) it wouldn't be so bad. But you've got an easily dominated hand out of position against a very aggressive villain. Not really ideal :)

      Of course it could be possible. But this more kinda higher and advanced play if you know the 1st raiser, if you know the 2nd raiser. Also you knew that they both are capable of folding. But while having such a station in the hand I don't expect to have a lot fold equity. Of course that will be as well mostly our plan to go for the 4bet = turn our hand into bluff.
