      CO: $8.80 - VPIP: 62, PFR: 22, 3B: 4, AF: 1,8, Hands: 79
      Hero (BTN): $10.33 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 91850
      SB: $8.64 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 9, 3B: 10, AF: 1,3, Hands: 23
      BB: $10.28 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 2,2, Hands: 106

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with J :club: Q :spade:
      CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, SB raises to $0.80, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50 The odds were simply to great. Maybe this could be a call DEEP, but not not with medium stacks... I thought: with premium hands people 3bet at least 3*, this raise size is just weak.

      Flop: ($1.80) 6 :diamond: 9 :club: 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.60) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.80 His raise size is the same, he looks weak.

      Problem here is that your opponent seems rather fishy, and so small 3-bet pre-flop might tell that he has very strong hand, QQ(KK)+ maybe?

      So, that on my mind, I could call with JQ at position with these odds, but I'd fold to a bet on flop. Even if that scare-card diamond hits, your opponent might be too much in love with his overpair that he can't simply fold, especially if he has big diamond himself.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: Ouch, this is a leak here. We should 4-bet or fold. Your hand is easily dominated and we don't flop that great. Simply fold it and move on.

      Postflop: Why are we calling this cbet with nothing except two weak overcards?

      Simply fold the flop and move on. Turn is spewing money as well because I doubt villain is bet folding a ton. Most diamond hands bet/call and pairs don't fold either.
