      BTN: $15.67 (313.4 bb)
      SB: $5.57 (111.4 bb)
      BB: $8.05 (161 bb)
      UTG: $4.31 (86.2 bb)
      MP: $7.07 (141.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $7.02 (140.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A
      UTG raises to $0.15, MP folds, Hero raises to $0.55, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.17) 8 4 9 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.75, UTG calls $0.75

      Turn: ($2.67) J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $4.30, UTG folds

      Results:
      $2.67 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 9 J
      UTG mucked and lost (-$1.30 net)
      Hero mucked A A and won $2.56 ($1.26 net)


      Villain is 18/6 over 33 hands.

      PF: A small mistake, I'd usually 3-bet 4x against UTG for Value.

      Flop: Mistake again, if I'd bet bigger like $0.90 or $1 then it will be a PSB on Turn to get stacks in.

      Turn: It's not a very good card for me as TT is not an overpair anymore. And I also can't really think of many weaker hands he will call me w now. Only QQ/KK

      Because of earlier streets, I'm wondering if I should bet small here and then another bet on River. But in the end, decided to go for just a little over PSB.

      Is it okay to bet here? I'm actually thinking now I should check behind and call his River bet or bet myself if he checks. Because I just can't think of any weaker hands that will call except QQ/KK.

      Hello,

      Preflop 3betting is fine and I think your sizing is ok.

      On the flop you have to decide do you want to play for stacks on the turn, or on the river. If we want to stack off on the turn, then just bet bigger to make the SPR on the river <1.

      As played on the flop, I don't really mind shoving here.
      The other option of course is to bet $1.2 and shove the rest, but I think shoving is better.

      Best,
      Plamen
