      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $21.94 (219.4 bb)
      SB: $13.39 (133.9 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10.50 (105 bb)
      UTG: $10.72 (107.2 bb)
      MP: $26.13 (261.3 bb)
      CO: $14.71 (147.1 bb)

      BU 20/17/3.3/11.1/15/531hands
      call 3bet 60%

      Is this a bad spot to 3bet? He calls a lot of 3bets, but i don't know if AJo is too thin for value.
      His FTcbet is 46% so i think i can get value if i hit.

      River shove also too thin? I think the only hand that beats me that plays this way is QQ


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: J:spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero raises to $1.05, BTN calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.15) 9:club: J:diamond: 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, BTN calls $1.30

      Turn: ($4.75) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.45, BTN calls $2.45

      River: ($9.65) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.70 and is all-in, BTN folds

      Results: $9.65 pot ($0.43 rake)
      Final Board: 9:club: J:diamond: 7:club: 2:spade: 6:diamond:
      BTN mucked and lost (-$4.80 net)
      Hero mucked A:diamond: J:spade: and won $9.22 ($4.42 net)

      Hi,

      I think AJ is quite top of your range and he may always herocall you down with worse Jx hands or smt like TT. If you ever want to bluff river smt like KcQc you should definitely shove river AJ for value

      Also consider how drawy is board I think c/rai should also be fine on the turn

      best regards,

      Thanks Kaitz, so you have no problem with the 3bet pre? I thought it was a bit marginal, but i don't feel comfortable calling OOP

      Against BU raise I would prefer 3-betting AJ, since he would very likely call with worse hands and since you´re generally ahead of his opening range then it is always nice to get more money in with the best hand, also if you hit your tp hand you very likely have there best hand and can play for stacks.

      best regards,
