      UTG: $12.35 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 16, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 32
      MP: $6.37 - VPIP: 49, PFR: 19, 3B: 13, AF: 5.5, Hands: 63
      CO: $5.97 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 10, 3B: 17, AF: 1.3, Hands: 70
      Hero (BTN): $6.18 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 4.0, Hands: 19694
      SB: $6.78 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 23, 3B: 0, AF: 0.8, Hands: 70
      BB: $4.93 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 13, 3B: 20, AF: 1.0, Hands: 16

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with K :diamond: K :heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, BB raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.10, 1 fold, BB calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.32) A :heart: T :club: 3 :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.75, Hero raises to $5.08, BB calls $2.08 all in

      If we call, the turn SPR will be next to nothing. If we shove, we basically bluff with our kings.

      I think fold>shove>call.

      It's just sick... I mean, he showed AQ. So he was neither afraid of AA, nor even of AK.

      I think I shouldn't have rebluffed him, considering his stack.

      Hello,

      Preflop your play is good.

      I think flop is an easy fold when he donks here. His range is quite Ax heave and also I don't expect him to bluff on this board, so just fold.

      Best,

      Hi Plamen,

      Why is his range Ax heavy? I thought it's heavy with pocket pairs that heard somewhere about set-mining, but didn't really understand the concept.

      My default assumption is that people mostly bluff by donking. If he wanted value from me, being OOP and without initiative, he would check/raise like always, no?

      Well, since people are "afraid" of stacking off with AQ/AJ, AK sometimes as well, but they find it very hard to just fold those, so they flat.

      I think, in general, people almost never bluff on Axx board in a 4bet pot since it hits our range pretty decent and I will fold here all they long.
