      no hud, speed.
      villain is multitable loose (not reg, but multitabler)

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($20.64)
      Hero ($12.12)
      CO ($11.21)
      BTN ($11)

      Dealt to Hero J:diamond: K:club:

      fold, BTN raises to $0.20, fold, Hero calls $0.10

      FLOP ($0.45) 4:spade: T:club: 9:club:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.33, Hero calls $0.33

      TURN ($1.11) 4:spade: T:club: 9:club: J:club:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.83, Hero calls $0.83

      RIVER ($2.77) 4:spade: T:club: 9:club: J:club: 3:spade:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.38, Hero calls $1.38

      Hero shows J:diamond: K:club:
      (Pre 64%, Flop 59.7%, Turn 22.7%)

      BTN shows 8:spade: 7:club:
      (Pre 36%, Flop 40.3%, Turn 77.3%)

      BTN wins $5.17


      Can we r to 80c preflop? Better to play it OOP with initiative.

      Flop is just random float - lets see what T brings :facepalm:

      Turn: TP and we got good FD :f_cool:

      River: Damn, he has some funky JT, J9, KQ, flush,...just fold...hero call :f_mad:

      If I call preflop can I c/r flop or is this playing with variance (rhetorical question probably)? C/c turn is probably fine but R is a must fold.

      Hello,

      Preflop defending is good. 3betting is an option if we expect him to call us with weaker hands OOP.

      On the flop I don't really like check/calling here. Yeah, we have gutshot and overcards, but we are OOP and even if we hit K or J we are not sure that we have the best hand and also I don't expect him to bluff on this board a lot.

      As played, check/calling the turn is fine.

      As played, I would definitely fold the river. The only worse hand that would bet here is QJ to me, and he might check this back and the others are bluffs, but we have no information.

      About check/raising the flop - it looks like a good option to me, if we think he's capable of folding hands like JT/A9 etc.

      Best,
      Plamen
