      River: ($18.92) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $18.92 pot ($1.26 rake)
      Final Board: 5 4 J T 7
      Hero showed A K and lost (-$9.04 net)
      CO showed 4 4 and won $17.66 ($8.62 net)

      MP2 is LAGy under 200 hands and CO is Lose Pasive under 40 hands,

      On the Turn with the NFD and now picking up a GS + my 2 overs I thought it would be a good spot to barel?

      Hi BigAl,

      Preflop: I guess his 20/17 stats are loose for FR. What's his opening range in this position? I don't think you should 3bet here by default though. But I think it could be fine if he opens wide enough (and especially if he calls with many worse hands and also if you have active image).

      Flop: I think we probably should cbet this. This is a 3bet pot with 3 players though. So we have 2 sizings we could use

      1) Big Flop Bet (like you did here), then shove the Turn
      2) Smaller Flop Bet, then we could possibly bet/fold or bet/call Turn.

      We pick up equity on the Turn, and with our gutshot + flush draw our hand should be strong enough to shove. We are mostly hoping he has some 99/88 type of hand which folds. I'm not sure whether he could ever fold JX though. He could also have TT and improve to a set.
