      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $72.11 (144.2 bb)
      BB: $77.65 (155.3 bb)
      Hero (MP): $106.42 (212.8 bb)
      CO: $86.89 (173.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A J
      Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, SB folds, BB raises to $4.50, Hero calls $3, CO folds, BTN calls $3

      Flop: ($15.25) 9 J 5 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $7.25, BTN calls $7.25, BB calls $7.25

      Turn: ($37) 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($37) 3 (3 players)
      BB bets $18.50, 2 folds

      Anon table.

      BB was a fish, BTN a tag on small sample.

      Should I fold preflop, even for those odds? BB is a fish, so I dont know how wide he could do this small squeeze, but simply couldnt fold AJ...
      Once he checked on the flop, I decided to stab halfpot, I have TPTK, but I'd be very happy to win the pot right here...
      After both called, and I have ~potsize left on the turn, I decided to check, and try to reach showdown. I dont think even a fish would bluff/valuebet worse in this spot, so I folded to his riverbet 3way.

      Fold preflop. I would call w AJs though.

      Flop is a bet for value , we can greatly discount overpairs from his range.

      Im def calling river if other guy folds. Given that its 3way i think the river decision is much tougher. May consider cqlling here, he could still have some ak aq turned into a bluff. I doubt the other reg has us beat whwn he checks turn.
