      Hero (BB): $5.64 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 12, 3B: 2, Hands: 145(from villain's pov)

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with Q :diamond: Q :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.10 Villain looks like a reg, so he has HM2 most likely. I have 2% 3bet stat in his eyes, hence I should wait till a blocker to 3bet, with this premium I should call. Again, I could 3bet and make him fold with UNO cards aswell.

      Flop: ($0.32) A :spade: 2 :heart: 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.72) T :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50 I expect him to 2ndbarrel this kind of boards very often vs pairs etc.

      River: ($1.72) K :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks planning to fold to 3rdbarrel

      Hello,

      I'd definitely 3bet here preflop.

      As played preflop, check/call on the flop is good and my plan will be to give up on the turn most often.

      I don't really think people would barrel a lot here, so OOP I prefer just folding here.

      Best,

      What do you think about my reasoning calling preflop? (in pink)

      I think 3betting here is mandatory.

      We have a very strong hand and we want to build the pot, and even if he just folds we win 4.5bb which is cool.
      Calling here is just loosing value.
