      Hero (SB): $2.67 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 2, AF: 4.4, Hands: 8114
      CO: $5.22 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 25, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 8

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is SB with T :spade: T :diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.05, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, CO calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 2 :spade: 9 :heart: 8 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.72) 9 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.44, CO calls $0.44

      River: ($1.60) A :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4.43, Hero?

      PF: 3-bet since CO's statistics indicate he could be loose, I expect he could call with broadway hands. I could have bet more like 9BB since he will probably react to both bet sizing the same.

      F: Have an over-pair, bet since I assume his range will be full of broadway hands which have overcards + straight draw and could also expect some value from 9X (9T or A9) or possibly 87.

      T: I think it's less likely he has a 9 now and so most likely has some type of draw. I bet to protect my hand from his broadway holdings.

      R: I don't think I can get value from my hand so I check, can we get value from missed draws by calling? Really only $1.88 to call, getting roughly 2:1 odds.

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: I think that our 3-bet should be larger OOP and while it is for value somewhat we will be OOP and see high cards often so we will have a harder time playing postflop.

      Postflop: As played what do we get value from on the turn? If he has broadway holdings don't you think he'd bet as a bluff (since those were floats on the flop)? And then we can simply call?

      Protection from those hands is definitely overrated. In the best case scenario he has 6 outs, that's 12% and nothing else. As played fold the river.
