      BTN: $0.62 (12.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5.07 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A 7
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.10, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.35, BB folds, CO calls $0.25

      Flop: ($0.75) 9 T 9 (2 players)

      River: ($1.55) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      $3.05 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: 9 T 9 2 A
      CO showed K A and won $2.90 ($1.40 net)
      Hero mucked A 7 and lost (-$1.50 net)

      Villain is unknown

      PF: I 3-bet bluff against CO's weak open.

      Flop: I c-bet flop on which I have equity

      Turn: Decide to play x/f and give up

      River: 1/2 pot bet by Villain, here I'm thinking I might split w any Ax. I'm behind AT+ but my 3-bet was to fold his better Ax hands. Maybe only AK calls my 3-bet. I guessed I leveled myself?? Don't think Villain really cares whether it's AJ or AK.

      Preflop: The raise is a bit light considering villain is short. By default I do not 3-bet bluff short opponents until we know how they play. Are they fishy or are they a midstack?

      If he is fishy we need to 3-bet more for value and less (or not at all) as bluff.

      As played I'd bet the river. We don't want him checking back pairs like Tx.
