      Seat 3: Player3 ( $2.19 USD ) - VPIP: 33, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 3

      Flop: Bet for value

      Turn: Firstly, think it was a mistake to bet this small. Secondly, when he raises me by this amount, seems like e Td helped him more than me. He will probably just call down if he has Ax one pair hands. So if he has some kind of slowplayed set or hit AT/TT then I'm in bad shape.

      He only has $0.60 left behind if I call so it's either 3-bet shove or fold. I gave myself 12 outs which will only hit 24% of the time. If I calculate his raise (extra $0.60) as a shove I will need to call $1.50 into $2.85 pot. Which is around 1:1.9, I have 34% pot odds. Thus the price I'm paying is too high to try and hit.

      Am I being too pessimistic on Villain's range that I can justify my call here? Hindsight, personally I would have folded now.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet should definitely be larger and on the turn, given our small bet I would expect a midstack to raise more than just the nuts (but we will see 2p, TT, etc too).

      So going with the hand there with our NFD and TPGK is perfectly fine (given villains stack size)>
