      CO ($8.87) 222bb
      BTN ($6.36) 159bb
      SB ($3.25) 81bb
      dienaszaglis (BB) ($4.28) 107bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 4 players) dienaszaglis is BB J:club: A:spade:
      1 fold, BTN raises to $0.12, 1 fold, dienaszaglis raises to $0.36, BTN calls $0.24

      Flop: 9:heart: 7:club: Q:heart: ($0.74, 2 players)
      dienaszaglis bets $0.44, BTN calls $0.44

      Turn: Q:diamond: ($1.62, 2 players)
      dienaszaglis checks, BTN bets $0.77, dienaszaglis folds

      Villain is 19/8, OR@BU=33%, c-bet=0, AF:0.8, 59h

      I`m ahead of his open-raising range, but is 3-betting the best option? Sample size on the villain is small, but as he`s passive, I could have just called and at least could see free turn most of the time, even OOP.

      I think his PRE calling range is 77-JJ, AJo+, KQo, KJs, KQs, AJs, AQs.
      Calculations in FlopZilla shows, that he`s at least calling about 50% of the all combos which means by c-bet is still profitable, as my bet has to work a little bit more than 1/3 of the time.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Preflop: Don't like that much the 3bet cause you just letting him continue with better hands and force worse to fold.

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't make sense to CB in first place here if you just planning to Check/Fold the turn. Therefore just Check/Fold right on the flop while the board isn't the best to CB.

      Best Regards.
