      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $11.25
      CO:
      $13.96
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB:
      $10.00
      BB (Hero):
      $10.56
      MP2:
      $11.26


      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.6) T, T, K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.6.

      Stats: 32/26/0.5, 78% steal in 34 hands

      Preflop: I think he can call a 3bet with way worse than AJ, so should I 3bet in this spot? I didn't 3bet because when I'm not sure I prefer not to make big pots.
      Just a call is kind of bad, because I don't want to make any moves against this player postflop, so if he cbets (his cbet% was 100 but I think 34 hands are too few to judge that) and I don't have anything I'll have to fold.

      Flop: As I said I don't wanna make moves against this player because he's too loose, but if this was for example against a TAG, is this a good board to raise bluff? Or I should choose less connected boards?

      i like the preflop call, you leave many worse Ax combos in his range

      on the flop, i would always call, you probably got the best hand+ you can take it away on the turn

      Hello Tosh5457,

      This kind of board is still pretty good to float while you even have overcards+GS. If he ain't a 2nd barrel-happy guy then we can easily just bet the turn and take it down very often.

      But of course just folding directly ain't likely totally off play, just safer one and avoid variance.

      Best regards.
