      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, Q.
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.65, Hero raises to $2.00, BB folds, BU calls $1.35.

      Flop: ($4.25) 9, 6, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BU calls $2.50.

      Turn: ($9.25) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($9.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $9.25.

      Stats: 27/20/3.0/33, 48% steal in 86 hands

      I think this flop will hit his range a lot. He may call with 88, JJ-QQ of course, JT, KQ, KJ and then there are the suited connectors he may have on his range. Should I c/f here?

      Because your OOP preflop i would make it more something like 2.60-2.75. And Cbet both flop and turn. Cause turn is good card to rep and semibluff. He really cant call us there. If he flats the turn, most of the time I give up on the river.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      What about his Call 3bet? Most likely I'd be inclined to 2nd barrel the K on turn which is very good card to do so. A lot of floats as weaker PPs would even be able to fold there. Plus of course we have still equity against any hand.

      Best regards.
