      Hero (MP1): $5.28 (52.8 bb)
      CO: $3.50 (35 bb)
      MP3: $11.46 (114.6 bb)
      BTN: $9.18 (91.8 bb)
      BB: $12.69 (126.9 bb)
      MP2: $11.85 (118.5 bb)
      SB: $10.20 (102 bb)


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q K
      Hero raises to $0.30, 5 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) 8 9 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.45) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      $2.45 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 8 9 9 3 4
      Hero mucked Q K and lost (-$1.20 net)
      BB showed T A and won $2.33 ($1.13 net)

      This player doesn't fold to cbets a lot, so I think he check/calls broadways and Ax unimproved. He also bets a lot vs missed cbets, so can I bluffcatch here? I think he doesn't have all Ax in his range as I feel like he rather plays them when noone has the initiative.

      IMO you didn't have enough fold equity to do a CBet on the flop against the Villain.

      You had:
      vs PFR
      Fold to Cbet = 30%

      You need at least 36%

      I would play check/fold flop, turn and river.

      Thanks for your analysis. I agree that there is not much FEQ on the flop, but even this fish can exploit me if I check everytime I don't hit (which will be pretty often considering I hit this a with unpaired hand 33% of time). That's why I rather bet flop and possibly turn (less fold equity on flop = more fold equity on turn because there is still trash in his range) and/or see the river hoping I hit.

      I would play it in the same way against this Villain. Especially on the River you have to fold to the bet.
