      Hero (BB): $69.56 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 18, 3B: 6, AF: 2.9, Hands: 73513
      UTG: $164.03 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 2.0, Hands: 357

      BTN: $50.00 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 24, 3B: 6, AF: 1.5, Hands: 404

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BB with A :spade: J :spade:
      4 folds, SB raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($3.00) Q :spade: 2 :heart: 7 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($6.00) 7 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.50, SB calls $4.50

      River: ($15.00) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.50, Hero raises to $62.06, SB calls $19.57 all in

      I see I missed opportunity to 3bet pre flop.
      I guess this board is not the best for this bluff shove move? Would you ever try to bluff river under what conditions?

      Hi,

      Here I think you get called by Qx hand I think if turn was K you can profitable raise, since then he can put you on AK and make his hero fold (although since you didt 3-bet pf I think he might also b/c river since you shouldn´t really have there too strong range to shove river (only KQ and 7x, 22)

      That´s why it is good to get aggression pre-flop that you can represent all the strong hands and put maximum pressure against his weak holdings postflop.

      Best regards,
