      CO: $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 16, 3B: 3, AF: 1.2, Hands: 1153
      BTN: $5.17 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 3, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 32

      BB: $10.15 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 63
      Hero (UTG): $16.71 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 3.9, Hands: 158053

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :heart: Q :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.35) 8 :diamond: J :spade: 3 :heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1, BTN folds

      Turn: ($3.35) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, CO calls $2.50

      River: ($8.35) 8 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $12.81, CO calls $6.10 all in

      I should probably slow down after he calls the flop cbet.
      Maybe, check/call T and evaluate R
      or ck/ck T and evaluate R?

      Second barrel on the turn is fine, there are still many Jx hands that call your bet as well as draws, although there aren't many of them admittedly, stuff like 9Ts.

      On the river I either go for a thin value bet of like $3.50 or something or I check/call it. The problem with the c/c is that there aren't many missed draws that will bluff the river, we have to rely on him having 9Ts or a double float, which is unlikely. Although he can float the flop with some random suited hand and turn a flushdraw and call another barrel. Again, unlikely. He will check back Jx hands, I don't think he will always call 8x down on the flop and the turn but it can definitely be in his range.

      Overall, due to the board texture I prefer a thin value bet on the river that can get more value out of Jx hands rather than a c/c :)

      Hello Anger86,

      No way we are turning our hand into bluff-catcher. Just Bet/Bet/Ship it as you did. :) he can easily have a lot worse holdings and a lot Jx hands which definitely are calling. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
