      Hero (BTN): $24.60

      SB posts SB $0.15, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.40) Hero has Q:diamond: K:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.20, fold, fold, CO calls $1.45

      Flop: ($4.80, 2 players) 9:diamond: 3:diamond: 6:diamond:
      CO checks, Hero bets $3.30, CO calls $3.30

      Turn: ($11.40, 2 players) 3:spade:
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($11.40, 2 players) K:spade:
      CO checks, Hero bets $5.00, CO calls $5.00

      I just want to know if the play is standard.
      CO raises 20% from CO and folds 55% to 3bet after raise. I have tight image at the table and usually he folds to my 3bets.

      So is your 3bet for value or as a bluff? I think it's too strong to turn into a bluff against a 20% range esp when you are in BU and too weak to 3bet for value.

      Thus I would call preflop.

      As played Flop bet seems way too big. Turn may/may not be a barrel, depending on his tendencies on folding to Turn and River bets as well as his WTSD. I guess after he checks twice you have value on the River for sure.

      Hello malcolmlinco,

      Not a huge fan of 3betting it either here cause I doubt that we going to make better hands to fold but rather capping his weak range. Therefore I'd rather Call as well and reevaluate postflop. Though otherwise seems to be fine whilst we wont have much fold equity on the turn.

      Best Regards.
