      Poker Stars $10.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -
      BTN: $23.71 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 30
      Hero (SB): $10.00 -
      BB: $6.69 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 28, 3B: 33, AF: 0.0, Hands: 18
      UTG: $15.21 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 21
      MP: $15.15 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 21, 3B: 0, AF: 5.0, Hands: 47
      CO: $16.97 - VPIP: 34, PFR: 27, 3B: 9, AF: 1.2, Hands: 41

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with K :spade: T :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.10, 1 fold, CO calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.30) T :diamond: J :diamond: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.65, CO calls $1.65

      Turn: ($5.60) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, CO raises to $5, Hero folds

      Turn bet is made to get some protection against draws (uneffective since I give direct odds to any fd/sd) and to get him to fold worse hands than mine( horrible brain fart, this is a reason NOT to bet)

      Given that I understand now how my bet is so bad should I just give up on the turn? I don't think villain is going to float me that often so he either has me beat and drawing slim or has some good equity hand (sd/fd).

      How would you play the hand?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: What's the reason for 3betting in first place here? He seems to be rather loose guy so I doubt that he would even fold such hands as KJ/KQ, so you are very often dominated. Not that I am saying the hand is bad to 3bet or anything but you could put yourself into marginal situations. Only good thing here is that he is unknown and therefore I don't mind if you even go for it.

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, I wouldn't play it any differently. If you CB the flop then I wouldn't be planning to give up right on the flop either where he could even have floats or just draw type of hands.

      Best Regards.
