      Hero bets $26.47 (AI), BB calls $7.23 (AI)

      BTN: 19/17, steal from BTN 31, f3bet 67 (18), wtsd 23, 803 hands

      BB: 41/2/0.9, fold to cbet 22, 96 hands

      BTN is on the border side vs who I can bluff I guess, but should be ok, especially with suited ace.

      BB does not like to fold to cbets, and 7 $ left in his stack. If he has overcards, I think he should still fold - hands like KQ, AJ. But he can as well have overpairs and sometimes even 9x. So his range might be more which can call the cbet.

      I'm not too sure what BB's range is here, I'll assume it's still fairly wide, unlike a well-defined coldcall 3bet range of a regular which would be mostly mid pocket pairs and AQ or AJs KQs.

      Against a reg I would just c/f this board because they have 99-JJ really often.

      With regards to your play here against this fish, I'm actually fine with it. I think betting small is not good because he just doesn't fold and stack sizes get awkward on the Turn. So our options here are to jam or to check (c/c or c/f).

      I don't think it's a huge deal if we get called anyway, unless we are up against A9 or 99 which are crushing us. I should expect him to fold at least half the time vs our overbet since I think his range could contain many AK AQ AJ KQ KJ type of hands which should technically fold to an overbet.
