      CO: $51.37 (102.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB raises to $3.75, BB folds, Hero calls $2.75

      Flop: ($8) 9 3 T (2 players)
      SB bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

      Turn: ($17) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $9, SB calls $9

      River: ($35) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Anon table.

      SB played 24/18 after 115 hands, 3bet 12.5%, wtsd 21, cbet F-T 100-0(0/4)

      Preflop I think it's an easy call against such a small size, and against such a wide range. Plus we are even a bit deeper.

      Flop? Is it a good plan to float vs him? I have gutshot+overs, and he hasnt been the twobarrel type of guy so far.
      River? Fire again to make him fold PPs/9x, maybe Tx?

      I think flop is probably pretty close. He knows he has an aggressive dynamic versus you, so I doubt he's going for the "one and done" strategy on this board texture. So yea dont mind folding flop as weak as it sounds.

      As played I would for sure barrel the turn and the river. I really doubt he's especially strong when he calls turn, and even though I expect to get hero called sometimes here, I think I still like a bluff.

      Another line to consider is to check back the turn and barrel river if he checks. Anything that check/folds turn will probably check/fold the river anyway, and we rep 9x/weak tx going for pot control on the turn and thin value on the river very well.

      I think you should always fire 3 rd bullet in this spots if you float that flop. Couse other way your play is not ev+ , imo that 3 rd bullet makes big difference.
