      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      There are fullring stats mixed so he is not that tight.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , K:club:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $1,75, BU folds, Hero raises to $6,25, BB folds, CO calls $4,50.

      Flop: ($13,00) 7:diamond: , 6:heart: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($13,00) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8, CO raises to $16,00, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      I think he could check his flushdraws on the flop.
      Such a raise can be a cheap bluff or exactly a bet to get me commited. Either way i can't be sure and i'm oop so i folded.

      Final Pot: $29,00

      Hello chocular77,

      Preflop: What's the plan behind the 3bet here? Do you think he is calling with worse Kx/Ax hands?

      As played
      Turn: Why not just Check the turn and let him bluff? He will most of the time bluff but meanwhile we can't be sure if he even pays with just FD or might even take different line as he did.

      Best Regards.

      Had no access to HEM on the weekend so here are the real stats:


      Maybe he can't even call with a weaker A/K (can't say it since low samplesize on Fto3B) but i get the initiative at least.
      What should i do different preflop because i don't see any other option even against a 19/13 player.

      Nah, overall I guess it ain't even wrong. As long he still seems to be calling so far those 3bets with wider range.
