      One thing I try to change with my interpretation of stats is considering hands played. If the sample size is small I give more emphasis on my feeling and correct play. After 300 hands I try to include stats to make my decision easier.

      This player has loose tendency but we should think also of his range. I really like you did that :) He's loose but I don't give him small connectors at least he doesn't go broke on the flop. He either has K or J, maybe he has QT or Q high FD.

      We all hate minr but I think he might do it with Kx so your play is ok.

      Well it is i though spot. Was your bet value bet or it was a bluff(semi-bluff)

      Cannot wait to read judges thoughts.
      From my side of view i don't know if i would make suck a cBet. I think i would consider also to play passively this hand by check/call line flop and re-evaluate turn maybe also with line check/fold.

      And i think i would also make lighter cBet because i think we don't have much to protect here. We can be already far behind. I think pot control is here more important than protecting.

      Well is i said....cannot wait to hear what mr. Veriz think:) )

      Hello sausage646,

      Well, the problem here is that we are against a very wide range here and we can't really exclude Kx hands in his range. :( Plus we are in 3bet pot, so I doubt that I am going to Bet/Fold here while I expect also to see Kx hands here. Nice hand!

      Board: J:heart: K:heart: J:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    46.72%  46.63%   0.08% { AKs, AJs, K9s+, QTs+, J8s+, Qh9h, Th9h, 9h8h, 8h7h, 7h6h, 6h5h, AKo, KTo+, QJo, J9o+ }
      UTG+1  53.28%  53.20%   0.08% { AhAs }

      Most likely something like that. Maybe even wider.

      Best Regards.
