      CO: $4.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 19, 3B: 9, AF: 6,0, Hands: 123
      BTN: $11.08 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 30, 3B: 19, AF: 4,3, CallOpen: 9(33), WTS: 19, Hands: 99
      SB: $9.41 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 66
      BB: $14.85 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 12, 3B: 3, AF: 2,9, WTS: 20, Hands: 263
      Hero (UTG): $10.30 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 45491

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 9 :heart: 8 :heart:
      Hero raises to $0.35, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.35, 1 fold, BB calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.10) K :spade: 4 :club: 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60, BB folds

      Turn: ($2.30) Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($2.30) A :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Have never really cBet in 3way pots on the flop as a bluff all that much before, but thought that maybe this is not the worst spot, especially since I can represent a K so well, being from UTG.

      Not too sure if cbetting turn is any good, though, but what about the river? I could still represent the Ace and maybe make PPs or even KT–KJ fold.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Would rather advice you not to open such hands if you don't have a plan for postflop and rather not the best plan.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just Check it and give it up, especially being vs assumed more looser opponents in the play. Nor we don't have any equity in our hand at all here if we get called.

      Best Regards.

      I am a bit confused as I thought that it is an OK openraise, especially since there are only 5 players at the table.

      Which of these statements is correct:

      1) I shouldn't be raising this hand preflop because my overall postflop game is not good enough and I keep making mistakes.

      OR

      2) The players sitting at the table (judging from the stats) don't justify an openraise here

      Rather 1st a bit cause preflop it's of course still possible to raise those hands, especially being actually not UTG but MP. But the main problem comes postflop where you practically have 0 equity and not to talk about trying to make loose opponents to fold, who might even float you with Ace high.
