      Opponent stats 20/18 AF:2,8 WTSD:35 W$SD:0 fold to 3bet:80 after 122 hands.

      My plan was to take down pot pre flop. On flop I didn't cbet, because I don't see any worse hands calling. On the turn decided to bet small and get thin value from JJ and don't let him get free card if he has AK. He very quickly raises my bet, for me this raise don't make a lot sense. I don't think he will raise here with something like AQ, QQ and he probably hasn't got AA,KK, so I decided to call and revaluate on the river.

      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Final Pot: $9.16.

      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a pair of tens(Ad Kc).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and tens(Js Qd).

      Preflop 3betting as a bluff is fine, but I think we can 3bet hands like KQo/AJo which have more blockers and I would fold QJo here.

      On the flop what is your plan if he bets? Are you going to check/call or check/fold.
      I don't really like going into those check/call lines since you will have very hard time playing on later streets.
      I think we could just check and fold against a bet.

      On the turn betting is fine, and when he raises I prefer folding.
      People rarely bluff in those spots.

      On the river checking back is fine.
