      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $111.68 (223.4 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb) 23/20/2.5/264 vpip/pfr/af/hands 3bet Blind vs Steal : 16
      BB: $69.57 (139.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $27.68 (55.4 bb)
      MP1: $57.65 (115.3 bb)
      MP2: $81.41 (162.8 bb)
      MP3: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J T
      5 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB raises to $4, BB folds, Hero raises to $9, SB calls $5

      Flop: ($18.50) A T 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($18.50) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6, SB calls $6

      River: ($30.50) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $14.50, SB calls $14.50

      This was the 3rd time in a row when he had 3bet me, and I decided to 4bet bluf even if it may not be the perfect situation for that.

      Anyway, I think that I missed some value here with small bets on turn and river.

      Hi Claudiu,

      Preflop: I would prefer to 4-bet hands with better blockers so I would muck this preflop.

      As played we should bet the turn larger. If he has a hand that he can call with (Ax, JJ-QQ) he will do so even if you bet $10 (remember we checked the flop).

      By betting bigger on the turn we could bet larger on the river (possibly just shoving).
