      Prima No-Limit Hold'em, €0.50 BB (6 handed)

      UTG (€50)
      MP (€40.75)
      CO (€15)
      Button (€77.42)
      SB (€50.75)
      Hero (BB) (€50)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, Q
      3 folds, Button bets €1.50, 1 fold, Hero raises €4.50, Button calls €3.50

      Flop: (€10.25) 5, K, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets €5, Button calls €5

      Turn: (€20.25) A (2 players)
      Hero bets €11.50, Button calls €11.50

      River: (€43.25) A (2 players)
      Hero bets €28.50 (All-In), Button calls €28.50

      Total pot: €100.25

      Anon table.

      BTN 23/12

      BTN seems to be a weaker player, so I thought I can 3bet/fold AQ for value, as he could call me with worse/dominated hands, and he would rarely make a 4bet bluff.
      Flop is a decent board for bluff cbet I guess.
      Turn bet for value, he could call me with KX, JJ/TT.
      River? KK is unlikely, and few combos, AK also unlikely, and also few combos. Flush is possible, but I can get some herocalls.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger being OOP and not mainly to avoid him getting decent odds but also for value, I'd head towards $5 at least even $5,50.
      Postflop: Actually I am not that sure even about the CB, though I guess I would end up doing also it. What I don't like about is the fact that we don't even have many backdoors which we could easily 2nd barrel. Just an Ace cause you can't even be sure if those outs as J/Q are clean whilst the guy could float with them and they improve his range.

      But though if I'd go for CB then I don't see myself playing much differently. Most likely try to pick the river value-bet as well. If we Check then of course it's a give-up.

      Best Regards.
