      SB: $2.32 (116 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.19 (109.5 bb)
      MP: $5.11 (255.5 bb) VPIP: 61, PFR: 43, 3B: 4.3, Hands: 77
      CO: $6.92 (346 bb)
      BTN: $0.80 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J J
      MP raises to $0.08, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17) 4 6 K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14

      What else I could have done? I don't see a fold here because his flop cbet was 93 in 14 hands. I don't like raising him here because he was playing aggressive and could have 3-bet me. I was taking that get to showdown without getting beat up road.

      Turn: ($0.45) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($0.45) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Results: $0.45 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 4 6 K 7 6
      Hero showed J J and won $0.43 ($0.21 net)
      MP mucked 8 A and lost (-$0.22 net)

      Preflop I think I would 3bet. He can call with worse hands. And if he 4bets light I am stacking off.

      Flop ok I guess, no need to raise, and inflate the pot. He will not call as you said, but ight even 3bet.

      On the river I think you can make bet for value, becasue if he would have Kx, he would most likely bet the turn or river himself. So you could get calls from 7x, 88-TT

      3bet on the flop. Flop, turn and river potcontrol, nh imo. Some people checking Kx till the showdown. He doesn't want to bet anymore but will call you for sure. Seen this also with Ax players and an A on the board.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Against such opponent you can easily 3bet it preflop. But otherwise seems to be fine, he is CBetting his whole range there anyways.

      Best Regards.
