      [b]Hero (UTG): $26.25 -
      BTN: $25.38 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 15, 3B: 10, AF: 4.5, Hands: 81

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with J :diamond: J :heart:
      Hero raises to $0.87, 2 folds, BTN raises to $2.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.38

      Flop: ($4.85) Q :heart: Q :diamond: 3 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($4.85) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75

      River: ($10.35) 2 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.80, Hero calls $4.80

      I see my playing as being very face up because I am not having anything else in my range than JJ, maybe TT but not often.

      I really expect my opponent to have very often here AA-QQ just because he would expect me to have exactly what I have.

      Wouldn't it be better to fold JJ/TT preflop until I have a stat that says villain that is 3betting a lot IP and then start 4betting them for stacks?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      The problem here is that he is doing that vs UTG range. Do you think he is still doing that with weak hands? Any position stats like how much does he 3bet on the BTN? For the given raise size he is giving out I wouldn't fold either.

      But what I would do is that I would Check/Fold the river, what else do you think is Checking the flop when he actually could have bluffed and didn't? And now bets the turn & river what you beat?

      Best Regards.
