      Another 3-bet pot that I struggled with. Flop might have hit my opponent too. My thinking was, I only beat AK/AQ/AJ type of hands and nothing else in his range. Do I cbet? And by how much? 50%? Or All-in?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , A:spade:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.27) K:heart: , Q:diamond: , J:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($1.27) K:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.27) J:diamond: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.72, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.27

      Hey sp00nman,

      With only potsize left on the flop you have to shove it. The flop is not the greatest, but your only alternative is to c/f which is too weak because you have the best hand decent amount of time and quite some outs in case you are behind. If he calls I'd make a note of what he calls 3-bets with OOP.

      Best regards,
