      BB: $10.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 13, AF: 3.2, Hands: 86
      UTG: $15.55 - VPIP: 48, PFR: 28, 3B: 2, AF: 2.3, FoldToCbFlop: 40(15) Hands: 155
      MP: $12.52 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 8, 3B: 2, AF: 1.7, Hands: 248
      Hero (CO): $10.00 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 3.8, Hands: 105891
      BTN: $10.00 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 0.0, Hands: 42
      SB: $11.11 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 0.0, Hands: 63

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :club: Q :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.90, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) 4 :heart: T :spade: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.95) 6 :club: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.95) J :diamond: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      So I 3Bet for value, shoud be fine. The problem is the flop – I can't exactly decide whether or not to Cbet. Looking at it now, I would guess that cBetting should be the best play, but during the session I sort of got scared because villain calls so many cBetts and he might even be calling there with A high, not to mention any pair.

      But since his range is probably overall weak, cBetting is probably the best choice.

      As played though, I see no big reason to bet the turn since I can't exactly represent all that much anymore after checking behind on the flop.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: 3bet size might be a bit bigger than just 3x vs 3bb open and not to give him good odds.
      Postflop: I'd still CB the flop instead of just Checking and giving up the hand. We still have overcards + some backdoors + of course fold equity with the initiative.

      Best Regards.

      Say 10BBs against a 3BB openraise when IP?

      Yep, better. :) 10-11 should be fine.
