      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $85.32 (170.6 bb)
      CO: $48.12 (96.2 bb)
      BTN: $38.26 (76.5 bb)
      SB: $162.40 (324.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      UTG posts BB OOP, UTG checks, 3 folds, SB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $2, UTG folds

      Flop: ($5.50) 9 6 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($11.50) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6, SB calls $6

      River: ($23.50) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      $23.50 pot ($1.17 rake)
      Final Board: 9 6 6 T A
      SB showed T 9 and lost (-$11.50 net)
      Hero showed J A and won $22.33 ($10.83 net)

      Anon table.

      SB was a reg, no other reads.
      Preflop? I didnt want to 3bet/fold, it's quite marginal, but I will have position on the reg, and maybe the limper (openposter) fish also comes, and I can get more value from him, so I didnt want to 3bet, and exclude the fish.
      Good spot for floating? Sizing?
      Do we have a valuebet on the river? If he ch/called turn with Ax, we are probably beaten, but he could maybe call a bet with 9x/Tx/PPs.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: It's more complicated to play those type of hands even if you have position. Cause you rarely know what to do postflop as it proves there. :P Though of course calling ain't wrong whilst SB is still isolating the fishy looser.

      As played
      Postflop: You are floating the flop aka assuming that you expect to be ahead with your Ace high. So what's the point of betting the turn? You ain't really making any better hands to fold or are you betting for value? And otherwise easy value-bet on the river.

      Best Regards.
