      BB: $3.03 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 1, 3B: 4, AF: 1.2, Hands: 162

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is MP with T :diamond: T :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.07, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.25) Q :spade: 7 :spade: A :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.16, BB calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.57) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.32, BB calls $0.32

      River: ($1.21) J :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Okay, it's my third almost identical hand, and I seem to learn nothing :(

      Turn should be fold because we can't make neither QK, nor KK fold here often enough. There are almost no draws possbile as well, given his PFR and 3B range.

      Thus we go for a passive line and check behind the turn with an intention to fold on the river, correct?

      PS: If he knew that we are playing our draws aggressively, we could try pushing him out on the river, but on NL2 no one is paying attention to this, and I'm not playing all my draws aggressively :) But in theory, could it work?

      Hello,

      Preflop your play is good.

      On the flop I prefer checking back. There are no better hands that would fold here, and considering that we have SD value I prefer checking back.

      As played on the flop, I prefer checking back the turn as well with the intention to fold against a bet.

      Overall I wouldn't try to push anybody out of a good hand on NL2. No matter what we think we represent - he might not be thinking of that at all and there is quite a big possibility for that.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Plamen,

      Hope now I won't turn my 3rd pairs into bluffs anymore.

      Thanks for the evaluation.
