      Hero (BTN): $10.68 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 64253
      SB: $6.86 - VPIP: 40, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 1,8, AFq: 33, FoldTocBet: 47(15), Hands: 176
      BB: $10.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 18, 3B: 4, AF: 11,0, Hands: 126
      CO: $10.40 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 13, 3B: 9, AF: 1,6, Hands: 249

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :diamond: K :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 8 :heart: 9 :heart: 3 :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.70) K :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($1.70) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.30, Hero folds

      At first I thought that the flop sort of hits villain's range way too well for me to cBet in this spot but after putting this spot in Equilab I actually am doing pretty well on this board vs his preflop calling range (~46%) thus this actually should have been a clear cBet with pretty much every broadway hand (KdJd for example has 30% equity and should be the worst of all broadways, but still worth cBetting, right?)?

      As played though:

      I am such a nit! X( I think that I should definitely have called there as he can still have worse Kx hands and missed draws + pure bluffs sometimes even. At the time of play I got scared because I perceived villain as being somewhat passive. But in this spot even this guy can still be betting like this with a weaker hand, I suppose.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Bet the flop already yourself, you could easily gain with it a free card for the river and always decide what to do. Though I don't really see myself folding whilst the guy could easily have worse Kx hands even.

      Best Regards.
