      Hero (SB): $6.97 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 4.1, Hands: 19117
      BB: $4.16 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 0.8, Hands: 27
      UTG: $4.01 - VPIP: 48, PFR: 13, 3B: 6, AF: 1.7, Hands: 193
      CO: $6.81 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 15, 3B: 5, AF: 1.5, Hands: 67
      BTN: $18.85 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 23, 3B: 8, AF: 1.9, Hands: 96

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is SB with K :heart: J :heart:
      UTG calls $0.05, 1 fold, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.18, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.65) 3 :heart: 5 :heart: 2 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45, UTG folds

      Turn: ($1.55) Q :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.05, Hero raises to $2.85, BTN calls $1.80

      River: ($7.25) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.47, BTN calls $3.47

      The guy is quite aggro, and played fancy postflop a couple of times. UTG obv. is a fish.

      Preflop I call, because if I 3B, imo, the fish will call again and I will have little FE against the BU.

      Turn raise-shove? I wanted to keep his TP in the hand, and I ended up giving him good odds to redraw me :f_frown:

      On the river I'm stacking anyways, so I prefer to bet myself, so weaker can't check back.

      Hi.

      Think you played it fine if you think he would still call with some worse hearts. Check/Call River is an option if you think he will turn some hands into bluffs when you check to him.

      Hi,

      Could we really expect anyone to bluff on the river after we raised him on a heart? Especially considering our remaining stack. To bluff with what? With a top pair or a straight?

      yeah, straight, sets etc, those type of hands may bet/call the turn. Those hands are weakened significantly by the river card and they may want to turn those hands into bluffs instead.

      but this is a very opponent dependent spot. Remember that you also have Jack of hearts, which makes it really difficult for him to hero-call you on the River with too many worse hands. That would make checking more favourable.

      I don't expect him to herocall us with too many non flush hands.
