      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :club: K :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.85) 9 :spade: 2 :heart: J :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.32, Hero calls $1.32

      Turn: ($4.49) 8 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $3.10, Hero raises to $7.78, BB calls $4.68

      River: ($20.05) 3 :spade: (2 players)

      I am not even sure if calling preflop is best. Went for a call because villain's range should include some weaker hands as well, but I probably should have just pushed since I make mistakes when calling postflop and he is going broke with AK, QQ, maybe even JJ there anyway. Well, anyway, at least I got some experience in 3Bet pots without initiative.

      Postflop: I have absolutely no idea how to play the hand. I suppose that calling the flop and raising the turn does not really make all that much sense. I sort of raised there just out of desperation and because I didn't really know what to do.
      Logic wise I suppose it is either raise flop/go broke or call flop/reevaluate turn. But by calling the flop I am not really that sure I know what to do on the turn either. Sure villain can still have AJ, QQ, but I guess that those are also the only hands that I really beat.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Don't get into habit to Call only with KK/AA, seems like you are doing it from any position and never 4betting. Your hand makes quite easy to read if you do that. Therefore as long he is also rather nitty which could tell us that he is easily willing maybe even to go broke then just 4bet and get it in.

      As played
      Postflop: Rather just get it in on the flop, we ain't gonna get a lot more value from him anyways on the turn whilst there might be a lot of scare-cards which could kill the action and he ain't paying with Jx even.

      But as played well, kinda put yourself into such a spot cause not sure if you even get called from a lot worse. But as long you trapped preflop it's going to be difficult to leave the pot alone here. Cause if we continue then we should ship the turn or either fold it if we assume the board is rather hitting his 3betting range.

      Best Regards.
