      75/0, 12h

      3-betting for value. I think he`s calling pretty loose:

      I guess, better plan was to bet once on the flop, and then hope for a free SHD. He probably would call with any PP, also FD. Then, if I check the turn and he bets, I know I`m beat.

      12 hands is a small sample, but he looks very loose/passive and he`s probably never betting with worse. Especially in a 3bet pot. My mistake was checking the flop. Now I don`t know where I stand.

      since board is dry and there aren´t really too many hands that can improve his hand then I don´t mind checking flop and at least c/c once.

      best regards,

      Hi, I can not put the BTN on anything else than this : AA,QTs+,J9s+,T9s,98s,87s. He is slowplaying a realy strong hand or have exactly the hand that you would call with on the BTN.(QTs+,J9s+,T9s,98s,87s). I think it would be better to do a strong C-bet to see where you stand in the hand. I think he turnd a busted flush draw on the showdown since he cheks the river. Am I right ? :)
