      BTN: $13.40 (134 bb)
      SB: $11.69 (116.9 bb)
      BB: $15.03 (150.3 bb)
      UTG: $14.71 (147.1 bb)
      MP: $12.69 (126.9 bb)
      Hero (CO): $17.26 (172.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A T
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, 3 folds, MP calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) 8 2 A (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.95) 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $1.86, Hero calls $1.86

      River: ($5.67) 6 (2 players)
      MP bets $5.41, Hero calls $5.41

      Results: $16.49 pot ($0.74 rake)
      Final Board: 8 2 A 7 6
      MP showed A 2 and won $15.75 ($7.58 net)
      Hero mucked A T and lost (-$8.17 net)

      I think I outleveled myself thinking that I'm representing a weak range by checking back on the flop and that it makes no sense to bet so big against me for value, but the guy called a 3bet OOP :facepalm:

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Yep, that's the problem there. What you can easily do in those spots is that think a bit about the situation, take some time and ask: why would he ever bet so big with just Ax or bluff? He can easily just make smaller Bet and would have the same fold equity.

      Best Regards.
