      MP: $9.59 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 3,0, Hands: 23
      Hero (CO): $13.91 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 56532
      BTN: $8.44 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1,7, Hands: 19
      SB: $10.55 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 2, AF: 2,7, Hands: 194

      UTG: $12.86 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 11,0, Hands: 348

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with T :heart: T :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) J :heart: 3 :diamond: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.47, BTN calls $0.47

      Turn: ($1.69) K :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.60, Hero folds

      So the cBet is standard: we protect vs FDs, overcards and get value from weaker pairs. But what to do on the turn? If we bet we are mostly isolating ourselves against a stronger range + he can still have Kx. If we check we can hope for a free showdown, however.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Those overcards are usually pretty bad to 2nd barrel, although I would most likely still do that vs such a loose guy. We can very easily be ahead and do it for free showdown.

      If he is more aggressive then might even just leave it alone cause such guys take stabs on the river and we wont be able to Call it off.

      Best Regards.
