      BTN: 120.76 BB
      SB: 172.68 BB
      Hero (BB): 100 BB
      UTG: 109 BB
      MP: 119.04 BB
      CO: 559.44 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 9:spade: J:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 2.2 BB, fold, Hero raises to 6.8 BB, BTN calls 4.6 BB

      Flop: (14 BB, 2 players) 2:heart: 9:heart: 6:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 10 BB, Hero calls 10 BB

      Turn: (34 BB, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 24 BB, Hero calls 24 BB

      River: (82 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 56 BB, Hero calls 56 BB

      BTN shows T:spade: A:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 62%, Flop 22%, Turn 14%)
      Hero shows 9:spade: J:heart: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 38%, Flop 78%, Turn 86%)
      Hero wins 184.32 BB

      49 hands, VPiP 29, PFR 21, attempt to steal from BTN 100%.

      I 3bet bluff because of his 100% steal but it is small sample, and plan to cbet bluff on high cards and fold.

      Is it ok to play in this situation passive? If he checks behind then I would bet for value.
      On river I was sure I win most of the time because he wouldn't bet so much with TT+ when flush comes, and if he had fd he wouldnt bet so large on turn, but mostly check behind.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I don't like 3-betting hands like these OOP especially in spots where you expect to get called a fair amount. Why do we expect to get called a lot? Due to the bet sizes and SPR left if villain calls.

      So when we get called how does our hand play? Very weak as we can't even bluff with much equity and as you can see the pairs it flops are not very strong.

      As played your thought process is fine and the like is marginal because we have no info on the villain (or very little). Given that his calling range is so wide we can expect him to have a wider bluff range aswell.
