      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.9) J, Q, J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BB folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.9.

      BU stats: 42/40/18/21, 69% steal, cbet = 75% in 105 hands
      BB stats: 32/10/2.5, in 51 hands

      If I checked I would allow BU to cbet, and I could just call him down.

      Another option was to 3bet preflop for value because he would call with a wide range. But I don't have info on his fold to cbet so it's kind of scary because these fishes usually call a lot of cbets.

      What should I do here?

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Nah, I would most likely platy the same way. We still need to protect the flop any kind of draws and obviously even from overcard the Ace. Nice hand!

      3Betting is obviously an option as well but how easily does the opponent lay down postflop? Or to 3bets?

      Best regards.
