      Hero (BTN): 296.28 BB
      SB: 186.88 BB
      BB: 288.64 BB
      UTG: 100 BB
      MP: 95.64 BB
      CO: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:club: T:heart:

      UTG raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, fold, UTG calls 6 BB

      Flop: (21.4 BB, 2 players) 4:club: 3:club: T:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 10.16 BB, UTG calls 10.16 BB

      Turn: (41.72 BB, 2 players) 3:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 16 BB, UTG calls 16 BB

      River: (73.72 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      UTG bets 63.84 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 63.84 BB

      UTG shows K:diamond: A:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Threes) (Pre 75%, Flop 18%, Turn 7%)
      Hero shows A:club: T:heart: (Full House, Threes full of Tens) (Pre 25%, Flop 82%, Turn 93%)
      Hero wins 191.36 BB


      88 hands, VPiP 26, PFR 24.

      Preflop: I think it was mistake to 3bet against UTG, but I did it 3 times already against him, he called each time and folded to cbet.

      Flop: Tough spot, I have TPTK, he could call with fd, but also JJ+.

      Turn: I bet smaller than 50% to see where I am, and plan to check behind river. If he would raise turn I would fold.

      River: I think people mostly play like this if they missed draws. He would already raise me on flop or turn to protect from draws. I dont think he would do that with JJ, QQ, maybe KK. And if he thinks he is better, he would probably let me bluff again, this way he would just scare me off.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: As a default I'd 3-bet a bit larger here (more than 2.5x)

      Postflop: I would personally check back the turn and possibly call a river bet (especially on that 3). If he checks again on river we can throw in an easy valuebet against Ax and smaller pairs.

      The only hands that make sense for him to play like that are 44 and TT (4 combos). Everything else, as you said, would raise at some point. Maybe JJ plays this passive but that's about it. So I'd call river as well.
