      CO 22/18/8.0/10.6/13/150hands
      3b from CO 38%(8)

      Villain seems like a decent reg & I don't like flatting 3bets OOP vs aggro guys, but I thought 4betting is overplaying & his 3b range is super wide.

      Plan OTF is to c/c down. Maybe fold river since it would be kind of bad for him to triple this board with worse, since I show up with Ax a lot after calling twice.

      Turn sizing seemed really wierd & I think he 3bets a lot of Axs hands that have 2pair here.

      So it was either call turn/ river or just fold turn & I chose the latter.
      too weak vs an aggro guy?

      BTN: $47.30 (189.2 bb)
      SB: $14.75 (59 bb)
      BB: $28.43 (113.7 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $26.03 (104.1 bb)
      CO: $55.76 (223 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J A
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP folds, CO raises to $2.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.35) 7 4 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($11.35) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8, Hero folds

      $11.35 pot ($0.51 rake)
      Final Board: 7 4 A 6
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$5.50 net)
      CO mucked and won $10.84 ($5.34 net)

      Hello dannywratten,

      Preflop: As you say yourself, it might be not that good idea to Call it here. Of course it's an option but then you might have trouble postflop being OOP. You will miss a lot of flops and rarely know how to continue or when. Rather play IP against him, if he 3bets too much then might be better option to get IP vs him.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, should really know more about the opponent and his sizes. Hard to say if he is capable of bluffing this way. Some may even bluff the same way as he did here, some may rather be serious with those bets. So folding is still fine if you think his hand is towards nutted & stronger ones.

      Best Regards.
