      I started learning to let go top pair good kicker vs Overbets on the river recently :f_biggrin: and I feel it is saving me some money when I am beat.

      I am steal worried though not to let go of hands which I might have good equity in or might have the best hand.

      I chose this hand below which I folded to the river.

      Do you think by the way the hand was played we could ever call there?

      Villain is playing 17/14 with a 3bet of 6% over 270 hands

      CO: $5.98 (119.6 bb)
      BTN: $0 (0 bb)

      Edit: There is a bug with the HM2. Btn was all in preflop.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A J
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.14, SB calls $0.12, Hero calls $0.09

      Flop: ($0.40) A 6 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.40) 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      River: ($1.10) 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $6.22, Hero folds

      $2.50 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: A 6 7 9 2
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$1.19 net)
      BTN showed A J and lost (-$0.14 net)
      SB showed 9 9 and won $2.40 ($1.23 net)

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: We can also squeeze as a bluff to attack the dead money.

      Flop: Checking to PFR is fine.

      Turn: Calling one bet from SB is fine.

      River: It's possible that SB has a worse Ax although he would probably not pot the turn there with one. So we can even check back.

      Otherwise bet/fold is the best line, especially to an overbet shove.
