      CO ($50.50)
      BTN ($60.48)

      BB ($48.75)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 6 players) Hero is SB J:spade: Q:spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.25, Hero calls $1, 1 fold

      Flop: 5:club: 4:heart: 5:spade: ($3, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $16

      Villain: 36/14 3bet: 0.0 Cbet: 33 over 200 hands

      I should probably have bet the flop when he makes it a minbet like 2.5 or 3.0

      But as played, correct? sizes good?

      Hi,

      I think 3-betting pf would likely show you more profit than just flatting on the SB.

      Postflop is fine. I think you can also lead this flop, but if you c/c then c/r seems fine on the turn

      Best regards,

      I am not sure if 3betting PF would be better, he is a fish but I don't think his call vs 3bet range is wide enough for QJs to be much ahead.

      I would've 3betted however if BB who was left to act behind was a bit more aggressive, but he wasn't which made calling make sense.

      How come you think 3beting is more profitable?

      Hi,

      Generally you´re fine. QJs is not ahead even against top 20%

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      20% 58.10% 220,802,384 18,012,447
      QsJs 41.90% 156,727,393 18,012,447

      Why I like 3-betting that spot is that he would raise/fold hands that are ahead of QJs, like Kx and Ax hands and even if he calls pf, our hands plays so good most of the boards that you can c-bet almost any board and expect to show profit.

      He would likely fold on Axx and Kxx boards putting you on AK unless he has himself tp or some kind of draw. Qxx and Jxx would give you likely best hand
      and even on Txx there are enough turn cards which would give you strong draw, improve your hand or are scare cards for him (K, A)

      And since players would expect your to 3-bet with overpairs you likely get more credit than making moves postflop.

      best regards,
