      MP: $26.92 (107.7 bb)
      CO: $25.61 (102.4 bb)
      BTN: $38.05 (152.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $26.78 (107.1 bb)
      BB: $26.65 (106.6 bb)
      UTG: $26.52 (106.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:diamond: K:heart:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.60, BB folds, BTN calls $1.85

      Flop: ($5.45) 4:spade: Q:club: 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.40, BTN calls $4.40

      Turn: ($14.25) J:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.50, BTN raises to $15, Hero raises to $19.78 and is all-in, BTN calls $4.78

      River: ($53.81) 5:diamond: (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $53.81 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: 4:spade: Q:club: 9:diamond: J:club: 5:diamond:
      BTN showed J:diamond: Q:heart: and won $51.81 ($25.03 net)
      Hero showed K:diamond: K:heart: and lost (-$26.78 net)

      In the hand I thought that" ok time to quit, you are not thinking deeply enough, you should've folded". Now I realize that even against his top 2 I have 27% equity, given that he can sometimes have some AQ/KQ I played it well, right?

      Why do you bet that big on the flop? I rly want a call from TT/JJ here so I'd bet smaller... If you always bet 1/2th pot in a 3b pot it's going to play out better for you. You still get in it easily if you bet 1/2th pot 3 streets + when you bluffcbet in a 3bet pot it cost you less.

      I'd fold after he minraises the turn. Two pair is the bottom of his range.

      I agree with Farmachist his min-raise looks pretty scary at least IMO.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: I'd still 3bet a bit bigger cause he still gets here the odds for set mining with Call15 rule. :)

      As played
      Postflop: No need to commit ourselves on the flop cause he still got good odds preflop to set-mine, therefore I'd bet something like $3 being in 3bet pot and drag him along with hands like TT/JJ. We can always decide what to do on further streets.

      But as played on the turn it's mainly dependent on the opponent and how loose we see him. While I wouldn't exclude AQ from his BTN range I doubt that I'd fold the turn for the given odds and how we played our hand. Of course his min-raise looks kind of scare but it's difficult to fold.

      Best Regards.
