      Hero (SB): $25.09 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087
      BB: $27.12 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 21, 3B: 7, AF: 5,5, Hands: 86
      UTG: $24.96 - VPIP: 48, PFR: 31, 3B: 18, AF: 11,0, Hands: 29
      CO: $19.24 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 0,6, Hands: 36
      BTN: $27.74 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 18, 3B: 6, AF: 0,0, Hands: 85

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with A :spade: J :club:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.65, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.25) 6 :spade: 9 :club: 7 :club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($2.25) 4 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.55, BB folds, BTN folds

      BTN has called a 3Bet IP BUvsblinds once before.

      So my thoughts:

      Preflop should have been preferably a 3Bet, especially with the BB left to act and with no information on the BU. It just sucks not to have initiative and by 3Betting we also reduce the positional disadvantage a bit + avoid squeezes. And although I don't expect villain to call with weaker Ax all that likely vs a 3Bet, I can still turn my Ax TP into a bluffcatcher on the flop to avoid valuetowning myself.

      What about the turn stab? Vs regs should be OK. And they do seem to be reg-like.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Turn stab doesn't accomplish much cause you ain't making any made hands to fold. Nor you don't have even a draw yourself so I don't really see any point to Bet. BB could be still checking his medium strength hands cause BTN as PFA is to act.

      Best Regards.
