      Poker Stars $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      MP: $34.52 - VPIP: 67, PFR: 38, 3B: 20, AF: 3.8, Hands: 24
      CO: $16.50 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 24
      Hero (BTN): $27.23 -
      SB: $25.00 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 13, 3B: 2, AF: 2.8, Hands: 224
      BB: $42.16 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 0.6, Hands: 40
      UTG: $25.00 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 4.5, Hands: 133

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with 2 :spade: 2 :club:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.50, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.50, 1 fold, BB calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.60) 3 :heart: A :heart: 8 :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB calls $1, MP calls $1

      Turn: ($4.60) 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $4.00, Hero calls $4, BB calls $4

      River: ($16.60) J :heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $7.20, BB raises to $36.66, MP folds, Hero folds

      Flop I admit I was distracted by something and did not read the situation correctly. I think it is a bad bet.

      Turn As MP looked a little maniacish I did not think that raising is the best option, better to keep his range wider by calling. Indeed I give good odds to BB but he should fold often without a good hand/draw here.

      River My bet is designed to get valur from 2pair, Ax and I thought it is going to get called often enough and raised by the completed flushes which almost always are only in BB' s range.

      I think giving up that board is better option than taking stab
      I would myself raise turn 12$. Against 67/38 player you want to play there for stacks and also you want to protect your hand against flushdraws.

      I think b/f river is fine. MP likely call you down with worse hands and BB doesn´t always have there flush

      best regards,

      Raise enough on the turn to jam river.

      pre is wp
      flop we should go for a c/f line as people generally like to call once and I don't want to start barrelling underpairs
      turn as stated we should raise to get stacks in otr and more money in before a scare card comes
      river is wp, sizing could maybe be a little larger if he has a high WTSD
