      BB: 16/14

      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($20) 100bb
      UTG+1 ($7.55) 38bb
      CO ($20) 100bb
      BTN ($26.15) 131bb
      hero (SB) ($37.79) 189bb
      BB ($25.30) 127bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 6 players) hero is SB Q K
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.60, 1 fold, hero calls $0.50, 1 fold

      Can't 3B for value since his CO range is somewhat tight.

      Flop: 9 9 5 ($1.40, 2 players)
      hero checks, CO bets $1.05, hero raises to $2.60, CO calls $1.55

      Villain cbets too much and this board is semi-dangerous. I could barrel any J,Q,K,A and all spades.

      Turn: 3 ($6.60, 2 players)
      hero checks, CO bets $3.30, hero folds

      c/f on blank turn.

      Final Pot: $6.60

      Hi Chocular,

      Preflop: looks fine. 3-bet would be a bluff and I would only 3-bet if BB gives us trouble and is aggro.

      Postflop: I think that the flop can be a ck/fold as well because it's hard for us to rep a lot raising a paired board.

      We rarely have an overpair that can raise and we are limited to 55/9x which most likely just call. So a lot of guys will float you here and call all pairs (and he goes to showdown 28% so far).

      So if we raise we need to barrel many turns and rivers and our equity isn't the greatest. So because of all of the above I'm tempted to ck/fold or even ck/call and donk turn/river (he rarely ever bets turn so far) and we can play 9x/55 like this too.
