      MP: $28.92 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 13, 3B: 5, AF: 2.3, Hands: 8853
      CO: $40.26 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 3.3, Hands: 3001
      BTN: $10.00 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 11, 3B: 3, AF: NaN, Hands: 76
      SB: $9.75 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 14, 3B: 6, AF: 2.4, Hands: 84
      Hero (BB): $25.80 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 3.3, Hands: 39238

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with J :heart: Q :club:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 7 :heart: 4 :heart: Q :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.10, Hero calls $1.10

      Turn: ($3.80) 2 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.20, CO calls $2.20

      River: ($8.20) 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.90, Hero ?

      villain RFI in CO: 30% .... is my pre flop call too loose? (i don't know what to call vs a 30% range)
      cbet flop: 73%, cbet turn: 36%
      river agg frequency: 26%

      it looks like he's betting for value ... and i guess he wouldn't be valuebetting QT here. i'm thinking now i could've bet/fold the river

      thoughts ?
      thank you

      Hey VasiliZaitsev,

      Firstly defending against a 30% range -----> Useful idea to plug a 30% range into equilab and see what hands are a favourite. Because you are defending OOP you need hands that are slightly over 50% equity to make up for your positional disadvantage.

      Something like KJo would be exactly coin-flipping, so possibly should be a fold (or 3bet bluff). ATo+, KQ, that kind of range is good to flat. Hands slightly weaker make great 3bet bluffs. JQo is a little loose then. IP you can obviously defend a little wider vs the same range.

      Flat flop donk-turn is a decent line, (or would be if villains range was a little wider!), to extract value from FD's 99/TT that might check back etc.

      On the river a small bet to extract value from 99/TT + worse Qx is good, perhaps around $3. (He can still be opening as wide as Q9s in a 30% range). If you thought villain was bluffy, check-call works, but assuming he's not, check/fold is fine.
