      Final Board: 4 Q 3 A 9
      Hero mucked 8 7 and lost (-$2.20 net)
      BB mucked and won $4.20 ($2 net)

      I dont know how to describe the meaning of the stats in terms of if the players a TAGy or LAGy in 6max so until I do Ill just post there stats unless I have less than 20 hands. In this case BB is an Unknown.

      I decided to Raise this from the CO because the BTN is Tight and the BB is Unknown, the SB is a lil lose but its ok cause I have position. This is the first time I have done a 3 barel bluff I thought on the River no Flush completed and I have represented a strong hand the whole way and since 8High is never winning a SD I decided to try and get BB off an Ace.

      The raise preflop is definitely on the big side. 4x from a stealing position (with what appears to be a looser range) is too large. I'd make it at most 3x.

      As played we can also bet something like $1 (instead of 1.26) on the river to get him to fold a weak pair + draw and maybe a Qx. The only problem is that once the A hits the turn and he still calls his range will contain a lot of Ah, Qx and very few other draws/hands that could fold.

      Considering he is unknown and that we play 4 nl (so players are call happy) I wouldn't want to try to get him to fold a TP or 2nd pair (and he can also have slowplays).
