      BTN: $10.50 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 16, 3B: 8, AF: 3.9, Hands: 452

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with J :club: J :heart:
      UTG raises to $1, Hero calls $1, 3 folds

      Flop: ($2.35) 6 :club: 7 :spade: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.35) A :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $3.25, Hero calls $3.25

      River: ($11.85) Q :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $7.50, Hero folds

      Do you think raising flop is a better option? I make villain fold his Ax/Kx and get max value from his draws + I make my ranges wider with more hand for value --> more bluffing opportunities in the future.

      Hi,

      If you don´t 3-bet pf, then I like raising on the flop to 4$. You often have best hand, he can call with worse hands and if he has there Ax hands, he should just b/f.
      I would prefer folding or sometimes raising on the turn. You are not that often ahead to make profitable call and even if he has there flushdraw he would likely barrel anyway on the river

      best regards,

      Why should I consider 3betting pre JJ vs 19/17guy? If I expect villain to be playing 4bet/fold I don't see much point in 3betting JJ/TT/AQ like hands.

      Do you think villain is going to fold any Ax if we raise him OTT? If so I like it the semi-bluf-raise :P

      to balance out you´re 3-betting QQ-AA and AK, also if you add there semibluffs your 3-bet range he has to start fighting back, which mostly means calling with worse hands and sometimes getting all-in TT

      Don't really think so and there are already enough benefits to raising flop, which I think is the best option as played :) .
