      IPoker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.20 BB (5 handed) - IPoker Converter Tool from

      UTG ($31.50)
      MP ($21.74) fish (2k hands): 45/8
      Button ($21.20) kind of laggish reg (1,1k hands): 30/23, fto3bet: 52, cbet F69 52T 80R, AggFreq: F40 T42 R43, openBTN: 55
      Hero (SB) ($21.56)
      BB ($20)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 9
      1 fold, MP calls $0.20, Button bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.50, 1 fold, MP calls $0.40

      Flop: ($2) 9, 5, 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, Button bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40, 1 fold

      Turn: ($4.80) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $3.40, Hero calls $3.40

      River: ($11.60) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $15.80 (All-In), Hero calls $15.80

      Total pot: $43.20

      Results below:
      Button had A, 7 (three of a kind, nines).
      Hero had A, 9 (four of a kind, nines).
      Outcome: Hero won $41.04


      my question is just about preflop play: A9s - not so happy to play this hand OOP in 3w pot but I want to keep the fish in the pot and range of regular will be probably really wide, so is it ok call or do you rather 3b it? Or what will be your calling range in that spot?

      Thx for comments:)

      Hi Katrisone,

      Preflop: Our hand does play nice multiway for it's NFD value. If we 3-bet we turn this hand into a bluff and may scare the fish away.

      And we have an aggro reg/fish that can bluff a lot our implied odds go up so call 10 out of 10 times here ;)
