      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 7 5
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB raises to $0.90, BB folds, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.90) J 9 4 (2 players)

      $31.90 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: J 9 4 A 8
      Hero mucked 7 5 and lost (-$15.90 net)
      SB showed K 9 and won $29.90 ($14.00 net)

      stats is 28/16/445 and 11.2 3bet, 21.6 vs hero 3bet.
      On preflop, should I 4bet instead of calldown and if my hand is JTs can I call?

      On turn I thought I can't fold my complete flash because of turn is A so A9,AJ would do same..

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: Not really a good hand to play with, especially even vs wide 3betting range it's mainly going to be a postflop play. Although you didn't mention anything about his postflop play, so 4bet it. 75s just doesn't play great postflop, rather pick some higher SCs but then again comes into handy how the guy plays postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just raise it right on the flop and gain fold equity vs his weak CB than Call it and just play for the implied odds. No information on his CB frequency so he is unknown.

      Best Regards.
