      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 4.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BU raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.30, 2 folds, BU calls $0.90.

      Flop: ($2.8) A, 5, 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($6.8) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($6.8) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $6.8.
      Villain stats (147 hands)

      So little LAG-player opens button (steals a lot, so I need to play back at some point) and so I 3-bet.

      This is where I don't know what's best to do. I don't see me get much value out of middle pairs and he won't have a lot of draws either plus the fact that sometimes he will raise this flop with a bluff and I got bluffed off the best hand. So I check to induce some bluffs.

      What if he pulls a second barrel? call again?

      What are the typical post-flop lines for these kind of hands?

      Hello Zeffke,

      Preflop: He is folding to 3bets only 20% of the time so far, I guess I am not really a huge fan of 3betting cause too many better Ax hands Call us and we put ourselves into trouble.

      As played
      Postflop: If he is an aggressive opponent then I don't mind even your play, my plan would be Check/Fold the turn cause I doubt that he would be bluffing that often there anymore. Another possibility would be of course to CB but I tend to Check/Call vs those loose 3bet callers often times to induce bluffs.

      Best Regards.
