      SB: $6.78 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 49
      Hero (BB): $6.82 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 42074
      UTG: $10.57 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 16, 3B: 8, AF: 3,0, Hands: 180

      BTN: $5.05 - VPIP: 40, PFR: 29, 3B: 7, AF: 5,0, Hands: 48 Bu Steal: 4/7, cb: 6/6

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :heart: J :spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.12, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.07

      Flop: ($0.26) 9 :diamond: 7 :spade: Q :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.56) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($0.56) 2 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, BTN calls $0.10

      Against such a person should I 3bet preflop to collect dead money? Or let us see if we hit, and just float him anyways. Dunno which is +ev.I mean, we will collect a Cbet is we call. Even is we miss, we are ahead of his range. Or this is a bad way to play ?

      Hello!


      If villain`s not folding a lot of 3bets, let`s say 50%, you have to 3bet for value. If he`s folding 80%, it`s better to just call.

      As played, what`s your plan on the turn, when you called the flop?

      Absolutely 3-bet and cbet that flop, you most likely take the pot home right away.

      As played, you should stabb the river bigger, opponent will call that 2bb with any PP or Qx etc.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: How do you know it's dead-money?

      As played
      Postflop: What's the point of betting the river? You ain't making any better hands to fold and most likely not gaining value with such a Bet either.

      Best Regards.

      He opens a wide range in late position. We cant wait 10000 hands for sample size to be 100% sure, but currently it looks like that. Using Bayes-theorem, it's more likely he's loose then he's not. Simple math.
      E.g.g if one person has a 10% vpip from 10 sample, it's more likely that he's tight. Not sure of course, but MORE LIKELY.

      I agree that river bet is futile.
      What should we do preflop btw?

      Still didn't get the reason. How do you know it's dead money? Dead money is only when you also assuming that he is folding here.

      What to do preflop mainly depends against what opponent we are against, if he calls very loose range so we could 3bet it for value. Though the hand plays very well also postflop so calling is totally fine as well.
