      UTG: $7.07 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 2.5, Hands: 328
      MP: $1.94 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 5, 3B: 3, AF: 4.5, Hands: 1220

      Hero (BB): $12.55 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 20, 3B: 7, AF: 3.4, Hands: 52623

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with Q :diamond: K :spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.16, SB calls $0.14, Hero raises to $0.55, 1 fold, SB calls $0.39

      Flop: ($1.26) 9 :club: 5 :club: 6 :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.58, SB calls $0.58

      Turn: ($2.42) A :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.14, SB calls $1.14

      River: ($4.70) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.96, SB calls $2.84 all in

      I intend to bluff most draws or non-ace pair type hand on this board, since i believe he's calling too wide, could have lots of random stuff, 76, T9, J9, 98, KT single clubs, and give up the river unimproved. How should I have played it?

      Thanks in advance

      Hi Straywolf,

      Preflop: looks fine as an isolation raise versus SB fish.

      Flop: I'm not a huge fan of the cbet against what appears to be a fish. I'd check back and go for a delayed cbet.

      Turn: As played villain will have a fair amount of hands that can still call the turn and while he may fold an odd pair I think the double barrel is too thin especially considering we bet small so he will most likely call all of his range.

      River: What fold the river that did not fold the turn AND is better than our hand? We have the best hand that's not a pair so we beat all the random Kx, Qx, Jx draws he can call with. Because the river is low we can't really expect a fish to fold many pairs (unknown fish) and he is never folding Ax.
