      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , 9:heart:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, CO calls $0.07, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.17) A:diamond: , A:club: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, CO raises to $0.48, Hero calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1.13) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      River: ($1.13) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.48, Hero calls $0.48.

      Final Pot: $2.09

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ah 9h)
      CO shows a full-house, threes full of aces (3s 3c)

      CO wins with a full-house, threes full of aces (3s 3c)



      Ok..my open raise with A9s is a bit loose, i know.. I normally wouldn't open that from the HJ..maybe i was confused from multitabling and thought i was in CO. Anyway i decide to cbet almost full pot on the flop so that it seems that i dont have an Ace. Problem is when i get 3bet here and i'm oop i don't know whether i should 4bet or call... I dont think he has an Ace there often.. so if i 4bet i get him to fold all worst hands (pp,bluffs) and get called only from better Aces. So plan is to pot control.

      If he 5bet shoves what do i do?

      If he had bet the turn after me flatting his 3 bet on the flop what should i do? Call again oop? Check/raise allin? Check/fold?

      Hello Jellyheadz,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, seems to be fine. I doubt that we can play it a lot differently. I mean he will anyways have hard time to Call our 3bet on the flop. Although if I think he might be loose and have very wide range then I sometimes even tend to go for 3bet.

      Otherwise rather Bet yourself the river while he even Checked on the turn.

      Best Regards.
