      UTG ($12.93)
      UTG+1 ($45.96)
      Hero ($20)
      BTN ($19.90)

      Dealt to Hero 9:club: A:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.54, Hero calls $0.54, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($1.38) 4:heart: A:diamond: 4:spade:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($1.38) 4:heart: A:diamond: 4:spade: 4:diamond:

      UTG+1 bets $0.92, Hero calls $0.92

      RIVER ($3.22) 4:heart: A:diamond: 4:spade: 4:diamond: 7:heart:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $1.20, UTG+1 calls $1.20

      UTG+1 shows 2:diamond: 2:heart:
      (Pre 53%, Flop 9.6%, Turn 1.1%)

      Hero shows 9:club: A:heart:
      (Pre 47%, Flop 90.4%, Turn 98.9%)

      Hero wins $5.34

      Villain is 25/20/6.6 over 600 hands.

      Two questions:

      1) After reviewing the hand, I think it would have been much better to 3bet PF?

      He has quite a wide range to open with in MP so a 3bet should force a lot of hands to fold. Also it defines his range more and I have the initiative AND i'm IP :f_p:

      2) Is my check on the flop good?

      Since the range of the villain is so wide its more likely than not that he missed the flop. Nevertheless, if I raise here what hand I beat will call? A8- and a few PP will maybe call but its also possible he hit a stronger A in which case i'm only donating money. By checking I keep the pot small in the case I have the weaker hand, my hand looks weakers so I might get more value on later streets and I can also induce a turn/river bluff.

      Is my line of reasoning valid?

      Hello Jehryn,

      Preflop: Do you want someone to join with you? Will you like the pot being multiway with your hand?

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment. We ain't gonna get called on the flop anyways from a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
