      BTN: $3.14 - VPIP: 51, PFR: 2, 3B: 0, AF: 2.2, Hands: 169
      SB: $1.40 - VPIP: 12, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 42
      Hero (BB): $3.68 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 20, 3B: 8, AF: 4.3, Hands: 14030
      UTG: $3.97 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 5, 3B: 7, AF: 1.7, Hands: 108
      MP: $4.41 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 2.7, Hands: 92
      CO: $3.00 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 12, 3B: 6, AF: 2.1, Hands: 373

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with A :diamond: J :spade:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.04, Hero calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.08) 6 :diamond: J :diamond: 7 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.24) 7 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.22, Hero folds

      I don't like his PFR so I flat.

      Turn: given that little that I know about him, his line doesn't look like bluffing, and it's at least an overpair.

      So fold? I just see very few KJ type of hands, and many QQ+, 78s, 67s type of hands.

      Flop should be pretty straightforward too, right? Nothing fancy against a pot bet.

      PS: people min-raise aces as well

      Hi German,

      Preflop: I don't mind 3-bet/folding versus a min raise here with position. It would be thin value.

      Postflop: As played it's close because, with that small preflop raise he can have a wider range and he may overvalue Jx because of how drawy the board is.

      I think we can call at least turn and see his river action. Most of the time he cks river even with AJ.

      Bogdan, the thing was that he didn't think a second about the bets. It was just click, click!

      It seems either like bluffing (which is absurd), or a poorly concealed monster.

      What do you think about this kinda reads -- bet timing.

      Gotcha regarding preflop, true, small raises = weaker range.

      Yeh, if you go based on the timing tell then it's fine. But some guys still insta bet all the range they'd want to bet like Jx.
