      IPoker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (4 handed) - IPoker Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      saw flop

      BB ($8.90)
      UTG ($9.11) 68/6 agfactor 1.8 wts 39 hands 57
      Button ($6.13)
      Hero (SB) ($8.10)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, J
      UTG bets $0.08, 1 fold, Hero raises $0.26, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 4, 5, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.44, UTG calls $0.44

      Turn: ($1.48) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, UTG calls $0.80

      River: ($3.08) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, UTG calls $1.20

      Total pot: $5.48

      Preflop: if we 3bet preflop against 68/6 wts 39, we will not make him fold to our cbet very often on the flop, maybe to call preflop ?
      flop: is the cbet OK ?

      Hi Staselu,

      PReflop: The first question we have to ask ourselves is if we are 3-betting for value or as a bluff.

      Form your statement below it looks like you are doing as a bluff. But if we assume villain is really tight (when raising) then his UTG range is tighter.

      As played, because we can't expect a fish to fold a better hand on the flop and not a lot worse calls the cbet (plus he is IP) it is not the greatest (although we have a backdoor flush and 2 overs).

      Considering he minraised preflop I would 3-bet here as well, but I would consider it being for value (worse will call preflop) and I would plan to fold to a 4-bet.
