      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 6:spade: 6:club:

      fold, fold, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.35, fold

      Flop: ($1.30, 3 players) K:heart: Q:spade: 3:club:
      SB checks, MP bets $0.62, Hero raises to $1.55, fold, fold

      Hero wins $2.42

      SB 14-3-2, 162 hands, check-raise 0% (0/5) - most likely missed his set or some similar hand by checking. Could as well hit it, but then again, what are the odds? :) )
      MP 22-15-3, 70% cbet, 640 hands. Now, I have noticed that villain usually bets 60% as standard in a simple PFA pot (not 3bet+ pots) and villain folded 2 times when bet half the pot and folded on raise. I decided to test the theory.

      Given he bets pretty small, and you can make him fold better hands, and you are in position, it doesn't look as a mistake.

      Hello faronel,

      Don't like it that much, especially not on such a board where the guy has not that high CB frequency and CBs into multiway pot. Just cause everyone folded doesn't mean that I'd do it. :) I would leave the pot alone and play mainly for set value with my hand, we also have another opponent behind us. Neither you can't represent much there, just KQ (some % of QQ).

      Best Regards.
