      this hand was early in the session before I got to see what a spazz/fish BU was.
      so, at the time I had no read.
      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem

      UTG Player2 ($4.54) 114bb
      UTG+1 Player4 ($9.53) 238bb
      MP1 Player5 ($3.19) 80bb
      MP2 Player6 ($4.24) 106bb
      CO William340 ($5.84) 146bb
      BTN Player8 ($4.58) 115bb- VPIP: 43, PFR: 13, 3B: 20, AF: 1.3, Hands: 23
      SB Player9 ($2.57) 64bb
      BB Player1 ($4) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 8 players) William340 is CO K:club: A:spade:
      4 folds, William340 raises to $0.12, Player8 raises to $0.32, 2 folds, William340 calls $0.20

      his small 3B made me think he might not know what he was doing, so I called OOP, which I rarely do.

      Flop: K:heart: 4:spade: 5:diamond: ($0.70, 2 players)
      William340 checks, Player8 bets $0.50, William340 raises to $1, Player8 folds

      Final Pot: $1.70

      William340 wins $2.62 (net +$1.30)

      Player8 lost $0.82

      check raise too strong?
      better to check call and let him bet turn?

      I hardly ever check raise, and I'm thinking this is not a great spot for it.
      but c/c looks pretty strong too.

      if c/c is strong, then c/minr... :f_eek:

      this is a kinda sticky spot because being oop it's going to be tough to get his whole stack.
      he's probably going to checkbehind the turn :f_biggrin: and river :f_biggrin:
      maybe c/c and donkbet turn... :D

      I think 4-bet/calling against 43/13 player who is 3-betting 20% of his hands would also show you profit.
      Postflop I would prefer c/c flop and c/rai turn. This way he can barrel again on his air and I can profitable c/rai at any turn card. If you c/r flop then he likely can only continue with Kx or stronger hands

      best regards,
