      Hero (BTN): $5.40 (108 bb)
      SB: $5.31 (106.2 bb)
      BB: $4.32 (86.4 bb)
      UTG: $5.45 (109 bb)
      MP: $7.48 (149.6 bb)
      CO: $3.61 (72.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, Hero calls $0.13

      Flop: ($0.75) A 6 A (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.35, SB raises to $0.80, BB folds, Hero calls $0.45

      Turn: ($2.35) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.35) K (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero folds

      $2.35 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: A 6 A 4 K
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$1.05 net)
      SB mucked and won $2.25 ($1.20 net)

      Against 2 unknowns

      I put Sb on a range of AA-77, AKs-A2s, AKo-ATo, KQo-KJo when he 3-bets me. I called based on the fact that the odds are good, BB looks weak calling a 3-bet and not closing the action, and I still have decent equity with my hand against Sb range and I'm in position.

      As played, equity against his range (KK-77, AKs-A2s, AKo-ATo) on turn is 46%. By when river Kc hits and he bets, I don't think I can really beat anything except for the AT, ten of clubs.

      On hindsight, I should have b/f on turn?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: Rather fold it here, your hand is way too often dominated and you are also multiway. Rather putting yourself into trouble.

      As played
      Postflop: What do you think his Check/Raising range is here? :) I would assume that we didn't have that many Ax hands beat you will very often end up being against rather nutted hand and which traps, so rather Bet the flop bigger and Bet/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
