      Hero (UTG): $19.12 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 83809
      CO: $4.55 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 4, AF: 18,0, Hands: 215
      BTN: $13.47 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 27, 3B: 8, AF: 2,3, Hands: 33
      SB: $7.74 - VPIP: 47, PFR: 25, 3B: 13, AF: 2,4, Hands: 59
      BB: $10.15 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 18, 3B: 9, AF: 3,5, Hands: 87

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with K :spade: T :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.60, BB calls $0.50, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.80) 8 :diamond: A :heart: T :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.80) 6 :heart: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.20, BB folds, Hero calls $0.20

      River: ($2.20) A :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      Villain seems to be loose preflop, but it's difficult to make sense of his preflop ranges as he both openlimps and openraises with a similar frequency.

      I think I should have just clearly folded the river as it seems like a thin valuebet by JJ–KK. Why bluff on a 3way turn there + so small (looks like a pot control bet) + bluff so small on the river. after all?

      Hi,

      Without any reads I would call him down. You don´t have to be good that often, around 15% and even if you´re behind most of the times you get idea which hands he is 3-betting small 3-bet.

      Also I think b/f flop makes your hand a little easier to play

      best regards,
