      UTG ($4.50) 113bb
      CO ($2.19) 55bb
      BTN ($4) 100bb
      SB ($5.21) 130bb
      HERO (BB) ($4.60) 115bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) HERO is BB Q:heart: Q:club:
      1 fold, CO calls $0.04, 1 fold, SB raises to $0.16, HERO raises to $0.52, CO folds, SB calls $0.36

      Flop: 10:spade: 9:heart: 3:diamond: ($1.08, 2 players)
      SB checks, HERO bets $0.56, SB calls $0.56

      Turn: J:diamond: ($2.20, 2 players)
      SB checks, HERO checks

      River: 10:heart: ($2.20, 2 players)
      SB checks, HERO?

      Villain: 49/33, 3B: 9, FCB 3B pot: 33 (12), AF: 3.5, SD: 25, 355h

      Given the situation and the villain, I would stack off pre-flop.

      Standard c-bet. Sizing seems fine.

      X/R would really suck, I don`t think I could stack off even with OESD + overpair. He`s calling the flop with JJ, AK, AJ, AT and, probably, sets.

      Against this range I don`t have too much value anyway.

      By checking I can bluff-catch on the river.

      He`s not checking back Tx. Only hand I can get value from, is weird AJ float from the flop. Can`t imagine him calling with AK, but at the same time I got the best hand almost always in this spot. Just make it 1/3?

      Preflop 3betting is fine.

      On the flop I like your cbet.

      Turn is definitely not a very good here, but against this guy I think we can bet again and plan to check the river.
      He could call us with hands like AT/KT/QT, also some Jx in his range. Overall my plan will be to check back the river.

      As played, I would bet around $1 in this spot on the river.
