      i probably just spewed hard.
      but i want to incorporate MOAR AGGRO and leveling in my game! so i'd like to know what should be improved :D

      Everest - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $2.94
      BTN: $5.36
      SB: $0.71
      Hero (BB): $5.00
      UTG: $5.35

      SB posts SB $0.03, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.08) Hero has A:diamond: Q:club:

      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.18, fold, Hero calls $0.13
      this is relative unknown at 32/29/50steal/17wtsd(6)/100cbet(3)/28hands. probably one of the more aggressive regulars

      Flop: ($0.39, 2 players) K:diamond: 4:club: T:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.14, Hero raises to $0.50, BTN calls $0.36
      i have a gutter, also A may be good. fair enough for a c/r bluff
      anyway he just snapcalls. sooo weird, maybe a draw or a weak K?

      Turn: ($1.39, 2 players) 2:heart:
      Hero bets $0.85, BTN calls $0.85
      probably just giving away good reasons for him to call? maybe $1 bet

      River: ($3.09, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.47 and is all-in
      i figure his range doesn't look very strong, also draws busted so i thought i could push him off this river. my line looks strong, if not for the silly bet on the turn

      Hello Tomaloc,

      As long he Calls the flop then I doubt that we have much fold equity anymore and without even gaining any extra equity I might even prefer just to give up the turn and Check/Fold it.

      With 3barreling I doubt that you are making any made hands to fold either on those stakes while the guy seems to be also rather more looser side. Also most of the draws missed and neither we can't represent much.

      Of course there is a possibility that he is capable of folding Kx or as well some missed draw but we can't be sure even on that kind of opponent and therefore before picking up such plays I'd rather do it with extra equity add-ons and scare cards.

      Best Regards.
