      BTN: $11.30 (113 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.30 (103 bb)
      BB: $12.68 (126.8 bb)
      UTG: $5.73 (57.3 bb)
      MP: $19.02 (190.2 bb)
      CO: $27.24 (272.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3 3
      UTG raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) 3 J 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($0.90) 6 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BB raises to $1.80, UTG folds, Hero calls $1.05

      River: ($4.50) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $3.80, Hero???

      UTG is 33/17 over 6 hands so no sample.BB is 29/0 over 7 hands so no sample either.

      preflop i guess it's really marginal but i figured BB would be given great odds to call if i do so i thought it would make multiway.

      on the flop i went for a checkraise and failed. should i have just led out hoping to induce something from the PFA?

      on the turn i didn't really feel too good about stacking off... but really there are only 6 combos of sets im scared of and 4 combos of 54s. the rest are just draws whcih i'm fine against. i decided to just call and "bluffcatch" but looking at it now i don't think he's ever bluffing. he was really quiet preflop and on the flop and now he's woken up...

      river is just :facepalm: i'm not sure if i should call because i've underrepped my hand a bit by not raising any time so he might be trying to push me out... not sure what to do on the river.

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: a bit marginal since villain is a midstack

      Postflop: Since at least one may be fishy (stack size) I would not check here and hope the PFR bets.

      I would donk and play for pure value.

      As played why exactly are we playing so passive? Are we really only putting BB on 66 here? He can also have 22 and of course some JJ. At the same time he can have Jx with draws or even some random 2p (along with some 45).

      So I would raise and play for stacks.
