      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $50
      BU:
      $60,65

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      BU openraise = 41%
      Fto3B = 53%
      Cbet = 57%
      CbetT = 60%
      AF by street = 2,4/2,1/3,5

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T:heart: , T:spade:
      3 folds, BU raises to $1,75, SB folds, Hero calls $1,25.

      Was not sure if i should 3B, but since his Fto3B is so small i could 3B for value.

      Flop: ($3,75) Q:heart: , J:spade: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2,5, Hero calls $2,50.

      c/f would be too weak. c/r would be overplayed.

      Turn: ($8,75) 3:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $5,4, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      He is likely to bet on the river again and i don't want to call him atw with 3rdP.
      But if i don't want this why called otf in the first place?

      Final Pot: $8,75

      3bet pre for value?
      as played I think it's ok ...we haven't improved and we can't really represent much on river if we'd like to somehow overplay him ... :)

      Hello chocular77,

      Preflop: Rather 3bet for value as long he doesn't even fold to 3bets at all, especially with TT.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't like the floating at all on 2 overcards, we are OOP and it will be very hard for us to lay down any hands, he might even Call the river after Checking behind with Jx or as well could Check behind with Qx. Calling just the flop and hoping to see Check behind on the turn is just waste of money.

      The main problem here is that his turn CB is also kind of big so might be not the best idea to Call in first place cause I would assume him going to 2nd barrel often enough even with draws sometimes. Rather would turn my hand into bluff at some point than play it passively.

      Best Regards.
