      SB: $12.35 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 3, 3B: 0, AF: 2,5, Hands: 29
      Hero (BB): $37.17 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 18, 3B: 7, AF: 5,0, Hands: 29854
      UTG: $8.46 - VPIP: 41, PFR: 5, 3B: 5, AF: 1,6, Hands: 131
      MP: $29.74 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 7, AF: 2,4, Hands: 352
      CO: $22.90 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 21, 3B: 17, AF: 2,5, Hands: 28
      BTN: $7.25 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 6, 3B: 13, AF: 0,2, Hands: 63

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with K :heart: T :diamond:
      3 folds, BTN calls $0.25, SB raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.25, BTN calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.50) 8 :diamond: K :diamond: 3 :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.95, BTN calls $0.95, SB folds

      Turn: ($3.40) J :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, Hero raises to $35.72, BTN calls $4.80 all in

      River: ($15.00) 6 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      I was uncomfortable with bet/calling the turn vs the shortstack and thus decided to check in order to potentially induce a bluff/semibluff vs which I could push and maybe even get it in good.

      Though I guess it is not the best play at all since he can as well often check behind hands with equity and if we plan to get it in with a check/raise, why not bet/call?

      So I think I should have bet/called afterall.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Just Bet/Bet/Bet instead of Checking, we don't want to see Check behind and at the same time we want to get value from him. He meanwhile may even call us with 8x vs bigger bet, though here he most likely folds vs your line.

      Best Regards.
