      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 10 Players

      MP3: $15.37 (153.7 bb)
      CO: $9.15 (91.5 bb)
      BTN: $3.35 (33.5 bb)
      SB: $11.50 (115 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $13.22 (132.2 bb)
      UTG+1: $9.45 (94.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $10.25 (102.5 bb)
      MP1: $30.74 (307.4 bb) 16/12/8.5/1.3/252
      Hero (MP2): $9.90 (99 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J J
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.65) 9 6 4 (3 players)
      MP1 bets $1.65, Hero calls $1.65, MP3 folds

      Turn: ($4.95) 4 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $3.50, MP1 calls $3.50

      River: ($11.95) 6 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $11.95, Hero calls $4.25 and is all-in

      The only reason why I kept calling him down was that his AF (8.5) was very high meaning he is capable of bluffing and the board seemed like one where he could bluff. I thought that from what his stats say he could easily be bluffing with overcards or similar hands.

      Results: $20.45 pot ($1.36 rake)
      Final Board: 9 6 4 4 6
      MP1 showed 7 7 and won $0.00 (-$9.90 net)
      Hero showed J J and won $19.09 ($9.19 net)

      I think it's still okay, though risky. What makes me thought he has weaker hand are his donks on the flop. On a 3bet pot if you want to extract value from OOP, it's natural to just ch/r aggressor's cbet.

      edit: just realize it's not a 3bet pot :f_biggrin:

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Seems to be fine, made him very unlikely to have a hand anyways on turn & river with 4&6. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
