      BB: $25.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 9, AF: 3,0, Hands: 165
      UTG: $40.37 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 20, 3B: 7, AF: 3,5, Hands: 427
      Hero (CO): $25.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087
      BTN: $31.37 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 15, 3B: 5, AF: 2,1, Hands: 355
      SB: $27.72 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 12, 3B: 9, AF: 2,1, Hands: 295

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with A :club: J :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 9 :club: T :heart: 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, BTN raises to $4, Hero calls $2.60

      Turn: ($9.85) Q :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($9.85) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      The opponent had not shown any maniacal aggression trends so far.

      Can we call on the flop because of our implied odds + backdoors?
      We likely get paid big time vs all his FD holdings once we hit + there are other draws we may hit.

      The call on the flop is a must I think. We get pot odds 1:2,78 and even if our only outs are :club: , we just need to get a little bit more then 3$ from him on the turn or river everytime we hit for this to be +EV.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems to be fine, I like it and most likely not a fan of getting it in vs rather passive opponent. Well played! Take a note here!

      Best Regards.
