      Villain is 22/17/4 (VPIP/PFR/3B) for 184 hands.

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $6.71
      SB: $12.77
      Hero (BB): $5.00
      UTG: $4.93
      UTG+1: $5.98
      MP: $1.93
      MP+1: $5.42
      CO: $6.55

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 3:heart: 3:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.05, fold, SB raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.15, CO calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.60, 3 players) 8:club: 3:club: K:heart:
      SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $0.80, fold, SB raises to $1.60, Hero raises to $3.48, fold

      For this hand, I think the flop 4bet might have been unnecessary. I want to protect my set, but I also want to extract value. Though I think at this limit many hands might call my 4bet which are behind to me, It is more likely that the villain has a Kx and may put more money in on the turn...

      Hey PhoenixPhreak,

      Not really a huge fan of your minRaise on the flop. Why not make a normal sized raise? Also this way you give him great odds to correctly draw and you dont wanna be the guy who makes mistakes.
      Why do you 4bet?Why dont you get it in if you assume him having a decent hand or just call if you think he is bluffing? I would just shove and be happy to see some Kx or AA. If it is a cooler let it be. Part of poker.

      Best regards,
