      UTG: $1.50 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 3,0, Hands: 46
      MP: $10.61 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 30, 3B: 6, AF: 1,8, Hands: 60 (openraise:48%, Fto3b:N/A; WTS:43, cc:0)
      CO: $13.14 - VPIP: 7, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 102
      BTN: $6.00 - VPIP: 51, PFR: 1, 3B: 0, AF: 0,4, Hands: 79
      SB: $10.00 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 10, 3B: 5, AF: 1,0, Hands: 87
      Hero (BB): $12.04 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 100716

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with A :club: 8 :club:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, MP calls $0.60 Perfect semibluffing hand. The guy doesnt like to call preflop+ I have a blocker+ suited, and I dont wanna ch.f on the flop, so I think 3b is the best play here

      Flop: ($1.85) 8 :diamond: K :club: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, MP calls $0.90 dead money+could be for value

      Turn: ($3.65) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero? Well, I got the nFD, but if villain doesnt fold on K-high flop in 3b pot, he usually has a king or better I think. Ch.call?

      Hello,

      Preflop it's close but the guy looks active so I don't mind 3betting here but I'd make it $1.1 here.

      I think we can bet the flop here.
      We would love to make him fold his AQ/AJ and it's quite better than going into check/call spots.

      As played, I think we can bet the turn as well. He might fold some PPs plus if we get called we still have some equity.

      Best,
      Plamen

      What would you do preflop, and why?

      As I said in my initial post, I wouldn't mind 3betting here.

      I would personally rather fold here, since basically we don't want to get into marginal spots against this guy OOP.
      If we were on the button for example, I would be more inclined to 3bet here since we will have an easier game postflop.

      Yeah, that is why I never purebluff from the blinds.

      As played
      As I know it, in 3bots on A-K high boards we have really huge FE, so once he calls, he has it.
      With that in mind, wouldnt be ch/f or ch/call vs 50% bet be better instead on turn?

      Well, lately Kxx and Qxx boards aren't boards on which we can get much respect and people tend to float a lot on these.

      This said, I think betting the turn is better than check/calling since we pick up equity, plus we don't put ourselves into a tough spot on the river.
