      BB: $25.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 2.8, Hands: 340

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with 6 :diamond: 6 :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, 1 fold, BB raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.13

      Flop: ($3.60) K :spade: Q :diamond: 2 :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.70, BB calls $2.70

      Turn: ($9.00) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($9.00) 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I think villain is representing showdown value when he play like this. Without any reads I gave up as I would expect some players to play AK,KQ this way trying to trap me.

      What line is better as a default? Given that usually players should give up when they check or have weak pair should I barrel as a default and if they call me with AK make a note a adjust properly next time?

      Hi DeMarcohsp,

      this is very close. His sizing is so small that it actually justify us to call for setmine.

      However, since it's so close. You need a plan. This hand proves you had none.

      I'd just give up on flop. You will not make better hands to fold and nothing worse is calling you anyway. Just try to get into SD ;) ...

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Doesn't make sense to Bet the flop, you ain't making any pairs to fold there. Just Check behind while he could easily be Check/Calling with mid-pairs or even trapping.

      Best Regards.
