      Hero (BTN): $11.04 (110.4 bb)
      SB: $7.82 (78.2 bb)
      BB: $18.54 (185.4 bb)
      MP: $17.26 (172.6 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, 2 folds, CO calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) 6 T 3 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1, CO folds

      $1.95 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 6 T 3
      Hero mucked A K and won $1.86 ($0.96 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.90 net)


      Preflop standard 3bet in my opinion.

      Flop...cbet with just overcards against fish that fold 50% to cbet or not to cbet ?

      Hey Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine given the positions (and bet size is fine too although since villain seems fishy we can add 1-2 BBs).

      Postflop: First, look at how often you will have the best hand here (very often versus fish). Second, how often does a cbet bluff have to work here without considering your equity?

      You bet $1 to win $2, so it only has to work 33% of the time. This fish has already shown that he can fold and he will fold often on such a dry flop since he has a very wide calling range.

      So well played !
