      i think 3bet is standard, BU folds a lot, BB is weaktight.
      my problem is my turn play, unsure if i should valuebet here, when i think his range is mostly PP, better Kx, maybe some floats. so plan was b/f flop/turn, c/f river, but i think still too thin to bet river

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4:heart: K:spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1.05, BB folds, BTN calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.20) 6:spade: 3:heart: K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.45, BTN calls $1.45

      Turn: ($5.10) 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.15, BTN calls $3.15

      River: ($11.40) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Results: $11.40 pot ($0.55 rake)
      Final Board: 6:spade: 3:heart: K:diamond: 9:heart: 9:diamond:
      BTN mucked 6:heart: 5:heart: and lost (-$5.65 net)
      Hero showed 4:heart: K:spade: and won $10.85 ($5.20 net)

      Hi dannywratten,

      well i don't see standard 3bet preflop so i would rather fold it preflop. With first look at stats you are also facing a solid opponent.

      As played

      Flop is standard cBet.

      Turn i think you just have to ask yourself is he is capable of calling you with worse hand like PP or something on that dry board. If not you should stick to pot control since you still have some showdown value here.

      Betting river would be overplay since really no worse hand i guess is calling you down.

      But lets wait also on veriz's opinion.

      Hello dannywratten,

      Preflop: Don't like your 3bet here at all. Especially when you guys are so deep and he will Call IP with very wide range there to play against you postflop. 70% ain't that high. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Against his range on turn I'd rather Check/Call and let him continue with worse PPs. Even if he Checks behind on the turn we are still able to get value from worse PPs. He will have really hard time Calling the turn without having himself the Kx.

      Best Regards.
