      BTN: 168.6 BB
      SB: 95 BB
      BB: 191.56 BB
      UTG: 57.04 BB
      MP: 221.52 BB
      Hero (CO): 128.16 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond: K:club: 3:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 4.68 BB, Hero calls 4.68 BB

      Turn: (16.76 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 11.96 BB, Hero calls 11.96 BB

      River: (40.68 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 25.76 BB, Hero calls 25.76 BB

      BTN shows A:diamond: 7:diamond: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 32%, Flop 19%, Turn 7%)
      Hero shows J:heart: J:spade: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 68%, Flop 81%, Turn 93%)
      Hero wins 87.6 BB

      250 hands 23 VPiP, 14 PFR, CBET flop 90, turn 70, river 50. AF flop 3, turn 5

      Is my line ok? I think if I cbet I fold weaker hands, and K or fd continues and it would be difficult to play OOp.

      This way I see he is able to bluff because of his high cbets, so I let him, and he doesnt have so many combos in his range, AK 3bets, KQ only, maybe KJs.

      River easy call? He wouldnt barrel it because there is danger from straight.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: If you expect villain to bluff a lot in this spot then this line in fine.

      There's another option that we have that works similarly, against guys that float.

      Bet the flop and ck/call turn/river.

      The line you took is better if villain doesn't actually float too light on the flop.
