      MP3: $1.82 (45.5 bb)
      CO: $4.66 (116.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $6.55 (163.8 bb)
      SB: $4.34 (108.5 bb)
      BB: $1.64 (41 bb)

      MP1: $6.23 (155.8 bb)
      MP2: $2.34 (58.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q :spade: Q :heart:
      UTG+1 raises to $0.12, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.12, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) J :diamond: 4 :club: 5 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.62) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.46, Hero calls $0.46

      River: ($1.54) 2 :club: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1.10, Hero ?

      Preflop, I hesitated to 3 bet seeing as UTG raiser is at the top of his range, and I felt the hands I would crush would fold and only get 4 bet by AK+. I feel this may have been a mistake.

      Thanks in advance.

      I 3bet this one preflop. We are in position and can also get others to call OOP.

      River is a call if turn is a call. Virtually nothing changed here. At some point, I would have 3bet to protect as we dont want to see overcards on the next street. Probably on the turn to get value from AJ, KJ and draws.

      Hello burgermeister,

      Preflop: 3bet it for value while also even being deep. Doesn't seem to be like a very good player with those stats.

      As played
      Postflop: Kinda close on the river cause I am not sure if he is value-betting this way Jx hands. But of course as we played it this way it will be difficult to lay down cause he isn't Check/Folding either on the river with AJ.

      Best Regards.
