      IPoker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      UTG+2: $18.93 (473.3 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $5 (125 bb)
      MP2: $4.44 (111 bb)
      MP3: $4.88 (122 bb) 15/10/6.3/7 v/p/3/af 41H
      CO: $5.30 (132.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.54 (38.5 bb)
      SB: $3.87 (96.8 bb)
      BB: $1.17 (29.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K J
      UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.36, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.24

      Flop: ($0.78) T 5 T (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.58, Hero calls $0.58

      Turn: ($1.94) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.45, Hero calls $1.45

      River: ($4.84) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.49 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.49

      This is an unusual hand for me.
      First of all, I have a spewy image at this table up to this point.
      I have had a huge # of pp, so my stats are 33/10 after 80 hands.
      Normally I open raise pairs, but call raises rather than 3Betting.
      Normally on SH table, I would be something like 24/22 or similar.

      Villain has been v v pushy, so I decided to play my flush draw passively.
      Also, for those PP I DID open, I ended up folding due to not hitting them, so it may have been reasonable to expect villain to be pushy.

      I also don't want to give him an excuse to jam because I would have to fold.

      I struggled over calling the T but decided to do so, because I had good outs, and if they hit, I thought I could get the rest of his stack.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: Not the best idea to call a 3bet being OOP and whilst it's MPvsMP. Way too often dominated here.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment if we assume him capable of bluffing in those spots.

      Best Regards.
