      no hud, speed,
      villain seems loose.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($12.47)
      BB ($10.20)
      UTG ($4.15)
      Hero ($10.13)
      CO ($12.22)
      BTN ($11.53)

      Dealt to Hero A:club: A:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) T:spade: 2:heart: 2:diamond:

      Hero bets $0.45, CO raises to $1.60, Hero calls $1.15

      TURN ($3.95) T:spade: 2:heart: 2:diamond: 6:spade:

      Hero checks, CO bets $2.96, Hero raises to $8.23 (AI), CO calls $5.27

      RIVER ($20.41) T:spade: 2:heart: 2:diamond: 6:spade: 8:heart:

      Hero shows A:club: A:spade:
      (Pre 82%, Flop 91.6%, Turn 95.5%)

      CO shows 4:diamond: 4:club:
      (Pre 18%, Flop 8.4%, Turn 4.5%)

      Hero wins $19.05

      My 3b raise would be super strong on the flop so I go for c/r on the turn line. Flop is super safe and also can't develop on the T so he's going broke with JJ+ all the day. Question is about his 77-99 hands? My line looks strong but he's also calling me with AT or so?

      Do you prefer going broke on the flop or is my line acceptable on this kind of safe board?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Lot's of people like to either raise lighter for value or bluff a lot on these boards.

      Considering his bigger raise size I'd imagine he has JJ-QQ and possibly some Tx in his range so I would consider 3-betting the flop small so we can get the money in easier.

      Your 3-bet on the flop would not be that strong due to the nature of the board. So if villain likes his hand, which we can tell by his bigger raise, I doubt he will ever fold.

      You should make the 3-bet on the smaller bluff so it can induce villain to make mistakes.

      However, don't get me wrong, calling there to let him barrel in this WA/WB spot is also fine, especially if he were to raise smaller.
