      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Přehrát handu

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BU calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) 8, K, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.48, BU calls $0.48.

      Turn: ($1.71) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, BU calls $1.20.

      River: ($4.11) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $4.11.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(3h Ah).
      BU shows a pair of kings(3d Kd).

      BU wins with a pair of kings(3d Kd).

      bu looked like a tag:23/18 3bet13 after 188 hands

      preflop: I am stealing here cause on bb is rock and sb is tigh tag.
      flop: I cbet here to make his pps, maybe AQ some conectors fold.
      turn: I second barrel here. I expected him to float quite often the flop and i want to put pressure on 99-QQ.
      Is my barrel here is ok? Or should i rather barrel on cards that give me some extra equity and FE?
      river: 3rd barrel to make him fold JJ,QQ, some weak kings?

      I don't think he is gonna be folding turn too often on the blank but I could be wrong, I would like it more if the turn was a :heart: , on river I don't think you should bluff on that blank, he could even have slowplayed sets.

      Being oop sucks. Without reads and, like you said, without scare card I might stick with cbet. Sometimes I go off the limb and barrel on river as well, but only when I know for sure opponent has tendencies to not fold his A-high, 2nd pairs to my cbet.

      The main thing here is that you are taking street after street whereas you should try to get a plan for the 3 streets.
      You say CBet flop to make his PPs fold but then on the turn you say that you expected him to float quite often. So which one is it?

      His fold to CBet stats would be useful here.

      Generally speaking since you have the BDFD I would CBet too. Without more info I would give up on this turn.

      Hello confidant91,

      As long you said yourself even that you expect him to be floating with a lot of PPs on the flop and maybe even Ace high time to time then I like your play. Don't see myself Check/Folding on such a board where we also have fold equity. Well played!

      Best Regards.
