      Poker Stars $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      MP: $33.67 - VPIP: 9, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 68
      CO: $31.85 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 16, 3B: 8, AF: 3.0, Hands: 55
      BTN: $58.75 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 22, 3B: 5, AF: 1.8, Hands: 72
      SB: $12.97 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 13, 3B: 4, AF: 1.0, Hands: 55
      Hero (BB): $28.66
      UTG: $60.46 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 12, AF: 2.8, Hands: 251

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with T :club: T :heart:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.34) 4 :heart: 4 :spade: K :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.74, Hero calls $0.74

      Turn: ($2.82) 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BTN calls $2

      River: ($6.82) K :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $7.00, Hero folds

      Flop Dont think x/r would achieve anything good, rather x/c and let him barrel off if he wants to or donk turn for value.

      Turn I chose to donk to prevent him from checking back with his draws. Given that the board is pretty dry would it be better to check and let him barrel for a second time? I thought that given the blank turn card he would not barrel too often so it is my duty to get some value.

      River I think I look like I have some showdown hand so a good reg would go for max value imo with a pot bet. I could also check with a K here (I think it's the best play) so he should be more unlikely to bluff here.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Depends also on his CB on the turn, although in those spots I do prefer rather betting myself vs 72 hands and protecting my hand. Nice hand!

      Although vs a BTN we could even consider 3betting for value as well vs known opponent.

      Best Regards.

      Do you think 3betting here with TT/JJ is good if villain has normal 4betting range (QQ+/AK) and calls wide on the button?

      Would you 3bet pp's wider, let's say 77+ and fold the smaller ones so that you take them out of your calling range?

      So the question is how do you usually ply pockets SB vs BU?

      Nope, it's not. Turning hand into bluff then.

      Smaller ones I'd rather 3bet, stronger ones as 77+ can easily be played postflop for an oveprair and of course set mining and maybe sometimes even mid-pair.

      So the question is how do you usually ply pockets SB vs BU?

      Depends mainly on the opponent, what kind of image we had, what kind of 4bet range the guy has and etc, according to that I would base I either I can 3bet for value TT or not.
