      CO: $27.86 - VPIP: 55, PFR: 19, 3B: 12, AF: 1,0, Hands: 102
      BTN: $11.21 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 18, 3B: 4, AF: 11,0, Hands: 126
      SB: $10.05 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 5, AF: 1,9, Hands: 176
      BB: $6.00 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 28, 3B: 19, AF: 5,3, Hands: 74
      UTG: $12.12 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 21, 3B: 10, AF: 2,5, Hands: 97
      Hero (MP): $11.17 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 64253

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP with K :heart: Q :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) 5 :heart: 2 :diamond: A :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB folds, BB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.90) Q :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.90) Q :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.70, Hero raises to $10.37, BB folds

      Does this cBet make sense on this 3way flop? I have been trying to widen my 3way pot cBetting range and thought that maybe my backdoor nut FD + backdoor SD + sometimes live overcards might be enough here.

      Although with the BB being potentially loose I might have been just better off checking behind there and looking for a spot where I at least have overcards as well, not only backdoor SDs + FDs.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Not really, and nor of course your CB size doesn't make sense. You would never-ever do that with an Ace. :D Just Check it through and be happy if you improve your hand as which you did.

      Nor I don't get the shove on the river, what do you think he is calling there with?

      Best Regards.

      His hand looks very much like Ax. Can he not call? If not, what kind of a raise size would you suggest?

      He has to be really bad for that, though VPIP/PFR doesn't tell he is bad but rather very aggressive. FD completed, Qx is possible, FH is possible. There ain't many hands what he beats to call you down for $5 unless you have other assumptions. I'd raise it to like $2,50-$3 -> makes him more committed with Ax.
