      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 44535
      CO: $5.23 - VPIP: 46, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 24
      BTN: $10.70 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 1,7, Hands: 253
      SB: $8.18 - VPIP: 41, PFR: 19, 3B: 15, AF: 1,4, Hands: 70
      BB: $11.40 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 37

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with K :diamond: A :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.35, 2 folds, SB calls $0.30, BB calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.05) 9 :diamond: Q :heart: A :diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.20, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.90, SB folds

      Turn: ($3.05) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.05) J :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.00, BB folds

      This is a somewhat confusing hand. I think that the call on the flop makes sense since the raiser might also have some weaker TP hand that he is protecting or if he is aggressive enough, he can even have a FD although that I would doubt. It's somewhat hard for me to find a fold there.

      Now, turn is a bit confusing. Once villain checks his hand looks very much like a bluffcatcher so I perhaps even just simply should have bet. But somehow I am afraid of a trap and since I have also now the nut FD I decided to play for pot control and simply played it safe. Maybe should have protected my hand against a weaker TP?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Flop: Actually I might even fold the hand right there cause there ain't many safe cards for you on the turn. And the pot is like $3 on the turn, he bets big what would you do there? Lets say a blank comes.

      As played
      Turn: From what worse hands do you get called if you Bet here? There are some but we don't want to get Check/Raised against we wont get called anyways. Nor you don't make any better hands to fold.

      Best Regards.
