      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 5 players

      Hero (SB): $25.35
      BB: $25.00
      UTG: $26.67
      CO: $23.50
      BTN: $32.48

      Pre Flop: ($0.25) Hero is SB with K :spade: K :heart:
      BB raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.75, BB calls $2

      Flop: ($5.50) 9 :heart: J :diamond: 4 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BB raises to $6.50, Hero calls $4

      Turn: ($18.50) A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($18.50) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $8.25, Hero calls $8.25

      Villain:
      22/14
      fold to 3bet 43% overall
      raised cbet 1/8 (this time)

      Villain's preflop 3bet calling range should be pretty tight.
      Like - JJ+, AK. Maybe some ocasional PP's which want to setmine.

      Flop: His range most likely is polarized here, so I just call to let him bluff.

      Turn: I expected Villain to barrel AK here if he raised on the flop.
      When he checks back, it looks like QQ. Maybe some random bluff, which gives up or wants to bluff River, if I check back.

      So, I plan to x/f Turn. Also worse hands won't call since his range is polarized.

      River: As I expected Ax to bet Turn, then I call River.

      Hi,

      I think that flop 3-bet or shove would likely best options. If you had there JJ then call is better, but here you likely want to get all-in against Jx hands+ should protect against draws. If he is bluffing then he would likely not continue his bluff on the turn, so you likely don´t get more value if you just b/c

      And it is always nice to have there overpairs, which makes him harder to bluffraise you on dry boards (with AK you´re likely at quite difficult spot and end up folding)

      best regards,
