      I'd 3-bet bigger pre to something around $0.55 because we're out of position against the CO.

      Flop is standard. On the turn you can either go b/f or c/c imo, I like b/f more though as it gives you information on where you stand against your opponent and gets guaranted value in in case you are ahead.

      River is easy bet/fold or check/call unless he raises so small he gives you the odds to call. I don't think he's ever shoving river without at least a J here. Only hands you may possibly be beating are AK/KQ.

      Edit : Disregard what I said about check/calling the turn, I had thought the jacks were the highest cards on the board for some reason, in this situation I'd b/f the turn 100%.

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: I'd make the 3-bet larger here. We are OOP and making it slightly bigger than 2x gives him good odds to call with a lot. Plus we can get more value with a larger 3-bet.

      Flop: Cbet is fine on this dry flop. Size is fine too.

      Turn: We can still get value from Kx so bet is fine, although villain will have some Jx hands because we raised so small.

      River: I would bet/fold the river. What worse does villain shove? He won't turn a Kx into bluff, Jx can raise and also backdoor flush (like AQhh, AThh, QThh, etc.)
