      MP: $23.13 (115.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.60, CO folds, Hero calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.50) 2 3 K (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero calls $1

      $8.96 pot ($0.44 rake)
      Final Board: 2 3 K 9 7
      Hero mucked J K and lost (-$4.33 net)
      MP showed A J and won $8.52 ($4.19 net)

      Didnt like to 3bet in this spot because he will continue with better hands preflop . Played @ Anonym Table , no specific reads on him just that he was a reg with 23/18 , cant remeber anymore . what you think about my passive line ? My plan was to call also the river if he would have bet .

      Hi DaJoker,

      Preflop: MP can still have a tigther range so before we make the call or 3-bet we should consider how often we've seen him raise from EP/MP. If he has been tighter we can just 3-bet or fold this hand. However, since it's 6 max we can assume he is looser so calling is fine as well.

      Postflop: We are bluffcatching both flop and turn so when he checks the river we don't have a value bet. Even better hands ck there (but ck/calL) like KQ/Ak.
