      PokerStars - $0.25 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $19.47
      SB: $28.40
      BB: $110.46
      UTG: $31.51
      UTG+1: $12.15
      UTG+2: $90.91
      Hero (MP): $24.99
      MP+1: $64.37
      CO: $49.63

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has K:diamond: A:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.75, fold, Hero calls $0.75, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.65, fold

      guy has been spotted with a <40bb stack, maybe some multistack reg or something.
      i call because of his nitty appearance

      Flop: ($2.50, 3 players) J:spade: T:heart: A:club:
      SB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks
      i beat AQ, KK, QQ, lose to sets/JT/AJs, ATs...
      cbh for pot control and to keep weaker hands in, maybe even hit a Q. bet and protect vs K or whatever?

      Turn: ($2.50, 3 players) 5:diamond:
      SB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $1.64, fold, UTG+1 calls $1.64
      looks like i have the best hand

      River: ($5.78, 2 players) 4:club:
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $1.90
      i put him on probably KK-QQ, maaaybe AQ so the betsizing is to extract value from that.

      if he is not opening UTG AQ or worse hands then just calling is fine, but against 8/8 I would prefer most of the times 3-bet, since he would likely raise/fold or at least raise/call TT/JJ that are ahead AK and it helps balance out times when I have KK/AA

      I see no reason why I should check behind that flop- if he is going to c/r I guess you can fold, but you should not give free cards+ AQ would always going to c/c you at least twice.

      betting turn and river is fine, I would bet river 3.4$, since AQ would call that amount and KK/QQ would likely fold to half pot bet

      best regards,
