      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (MP): $14.32 (143.2 bb)
      SB: $22.05 (220.5 bb)
      BTN: $23.29 (232.9 bb)-VPIP 31%-PFR 19%-PFAF 2.7-FTFlCB 70%(23)-FTTCB 33%(3)-Hands 371
      CO: $2.90 (29 bb)
      BB: $22.28 (222.8 bb)
      UTG: $9.77 (97.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with T A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.40, CO folds, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 7 A J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, BTN calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.35) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.70, BTN calls $1.70

      River: ($5.75) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.73, Hero folds

      $5.75 pot ($0.28 rake)
      Final Board: 7 A J Q 9
      Hero mucked T A and lost (-$2.80 net)
      BTN mucked and won $5.47 ($2.67 net)

      BTN is LAGy over 350 hands, not sure about this hand maybe it is better to just Fold pre with a LAGy guy on the BTN instead of makeing the standard open, I think I played it correctly Postflop I dont think there is much I can do on the River?

      I don't know how loose you are yourself, but at least when there's laggy opponent behind I'd open 3x, coz we loose less when we face 3-bet and we can still stack-off easily post-flop.

      Anyway, I think it's fine to bet 2 str. He seems to fold a lot on flop, and he could be on a draw at turn, too. The board just runs so bad that a big slice of his Ax will beat us. And without knowing his river tendencies it's tough spot. When he bets only 1/2 we could even call to get reads on him, if he really is laggy and tries to bluff time to time on river.

      His fold to flop cbet more points to fit or fold, so is his vp pfr gap.

      Bet vs missed cb could be interesting, to choose turn c/c and river c/c too, and aggression by street.

      Hard to say if lag let him bet least from turn, if not bet/fold 3 times.

      Hey BigAl123456,

      You are correct about pre-flop play. It's certainly fine to open raise this hand; but it will not generate a huge amount of profit from MP with a loose opponent on the button. Open-raising is not mandatory.

      Flop cbet for value is fine.

      Turn value cbet is on the thin side. He may fold flush-draws. He may fold KQ. (He needs to call with these hands for a value-bet to be good really.) The rest of his hands mostly have you beat. Also we have to the river still to play OOP. Check/folding wouldn't actually be out of the question here.

      River play is fine, you are beat far too often to call imo. The only thing he usually bluffs with is a flush-draw (specifically one with out a pair usually).
