      BB: $11.57 - VPIP: 61, PFR: 32, 3B: 27, AF: 8.5, Hands: 151
      Hero (UTG): $6.84 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 68570
      MP: $13.32 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 1.0, Hands: 132
      CO: $5.00 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 40
      BTN: $5.74 - VPIP: 46, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 1.1, Hands: 48
      SB: $1.95 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 30, 3B: 33, AF: 0.0, Hands: 10

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is UTG with J :diamond: A :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.15, 4 folds, BB raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.25 small raise, we have position, HU, and his range looks wide

      Flop: ($0.82) 4 :heart: 3 :club: J :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20 cant bluff. Maybe I wanted to see what he does on the turn.

      Turn: ($1.22) T :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, BB calls $0.40 I should have raised more I think, at least to 1.3$. Vs 1card FDs

      River: ($2.22) J :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.64, BB calls $0.44And again, bet bigger...

      Maybe the sample size wasnt too big, that is why this is so strange. But with these stats, what is the correct play?

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Postflop: Sample size is big enough and he looks to be like a huge fish.

      Based on this I'd simply raise the flop for pure value to at least $1. I'm ready to play for stacks here.

      So why exactly didn't we raise the flop for value/protection?

      Maybe I wanted to see what he does on the turn. If he overbets I kno whe slowplayed on the flop, if bets little, I'm ahead.

      Do we have bet sizing tells on him then? I didn't see a mention of this anywhere.

      If you have bet sizing tells that tell you the above then of course it's fine. But if no I would still raise for pure value on the flop (and protection). Villain is aggro, so far, and we don't know if big bet = big hand.
