      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players


      CO: $27.36 (273.6 bb)
      SB: $10.65 (106.5 bb)
      UTG+1: $9.75 (97.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.32 (23.2 bb)
      MP1: $4.47 (44.7 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10.32 (103.2 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.55 (55.5 bb)
      BB: $10.78 (107.8 bb)
      MP3: $8.86 (88.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 6
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.10, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, Hero calls $0.10, SB folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.45) 6 A 2 (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG+2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.37, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.74, Hero calls $0.37

      Turn: ($1.93) Q (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.38, Hero raises to $4.50, MP3 calls $3.12

      River: ($10.93) 4 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.50, MP3 calls $1.50

      Villain is 48/16 over 50 hands. I don't think a passive player like this will C/R with a FD so I think more likely Ax and pocket pairs. I decide to take this line because I think I will fold out a lot of hands by raising the flop and many hands that will call will check fold the turn. I also think that passive player is not likely to play a flush draw like this. I think this way he will likely barrel again with and even pocket pairs if he thinks he's ahead. Should I just try to get it in on the flop here?

      On the river I choose small because I want him to call although in retrospect I think I can get $2 or $3 easily or should I just shove?

      Hello buzzinowt,

      Well, most likely I'd start betting right on flop near the pot and after the min-raise I'd just 3bet and try to get it in. No point to slowplay anyways. That kind of player definitely has a lot worse Ax in his range and not that many hands beat us anyways.

      Best Regards.

      Is $2.20 a good 3bet size on the flop in this spot?

      Well, you could even consider going for bigger one while couple of draws around, ~$2,50 I guess would be mine. Or another option would be even to raise it that big to just ship it on the turn vs his stack. So ~$3. :)
