      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.32)
      BB ($1.99)
      UTG ($1.80)
      Hero ($0.84)
      UTG+2 ($1) 41/8/0/8 vpip/pfr/3bet/af
      MP1 ($0.87)
      CO ($0.40)
      BTN ($0.87)

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: 9:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.08, UTG+2 calls $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.06

      FLOP ($0.25) J:spade: 8:diamond: 3:club:

      BB checks, Hero bets $0.18, UTG+2 raises to $0.92 (AI), BB folds, Hero folds
      Villain's flop afreq is 67% and his af is 4.
      Fold to CBet 50%, and 3Bet CBet 50%

      Should I have shoved here?
      My break-even equity is 35%, assuming that he has such a wide range (I used 20% -- the top have of his 40% opening range)

      The other idea I had for this hand, is play check/call since he is so aggressive.

      When playing, I figured he had hit top pair or a set, so that would be J2+,Aj,Kj,qj,88,33

      Against that I have to fold.

      However the part I don't know is how to put him on a range properly using hist stats.
      He is so loose and aggressive, he could also have:
      JJ, 88, 33, AJs, A8s, A3s, KJs, K8s, K3s, QJs, Q8s, Q3s, J2s+, T8s, T3s, 98s, 87s, 83s, AJo, A8o, A3o, KJo, K8o, K3o, QJo, Q8o, Q3o, J2o+, T8o, T3o, 98o, 87o, 83o

      So, 8s or 3s, any jack, any 8 or 3 with a broadway, connected 8s.
      Against that range, I'm ahead.

      Not to mention the fact that he could have just air.

      Mostly against 2 players, I won't cbet this board because you do not fold out better most of the times + you block T9

      so when people shove on you when you cBet here, his range is far better than 99 in any case since it is a multiway pot and people are less inclined to bluff 2 players out with something random like A2o

      Best regards,
