      BTN: $51.34 (102.7 bb)
      SB: $51.88 (103.8 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $52.46 (104.9 bb)
      Hero (CO): $136.45 (272.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN folds, SB raises to $4.50, BB folds, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($9.50) 9 A 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $5, Hero calls $5

      Turn: ($19.50) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $12.50, Hero calls $12.50

      River: ($44.50) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $29.88, Hero folds

      $44.50 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A 7 2 7
      SB mucked and won $42.50 ($20.50 net)
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$22 net)

      He has 80 cbet 3bp and 39 double barrel. Combined with 54% river cbet I was pretty sure he is only betting good value on the river.

      Is the low DB enough for a fold on the turn though?

      Preflop: This guy seems pretty loose and aggro. I think 4bet/call here is acceptable for sure but I don't mind calling the 3b.

      As played when all draws missed, this is a very easy calldown with a hand that I was even considering 3betting preflop. I think you played it way too weakly IMO and we were pretty much at the top of our range besides 99 and the occasional 77/A9s/A7s.
