      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $6.96
      SB: $9.90
      BB: $3.28
      Hero (UTG): $10.00
      MP: $11.13
      CO: $10.66

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:heart: T:club:

      Hero raises to $0.30, MP calls $0.30, fold, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.05, 3 players) T:heart: 6:club: K:heart:
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.30, fold, fold

      Hero wins $1.95

      Preflop: Normally ATo is not in UTG opening range, but there are couple of shortstacks behind, so I make a raise.

      Flop is fairly bad for CHK/Call and go for draws in this multiway pot. So I go for chk/fold at any given point.

      And after MP has showed weaknes and BTN bets only half pot, I spot a chance to bluff them out.

      I need villain to fold ~45% to make this move profitable. I think they will fold that often.
      Other lines I could take? Leading flop and turn without information on given flop I guess is suicide and it will cost much. Though I have A of hearts that would block other flush draws from continuing turn.
      Calling without initiative on given board again does not sound well.

      Any other line?

      Hi Ilioas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given his small cbet i agree with our raise but I would make it larger.

      After all we want to take down the pot now.

      I agree to that.
      Normally I would make 2x bet size or even 2BB more (1,70).
      9 tabling probably made it less than desired.

      Yeh, bet size is crucial in pretty much every spot. So if you can work on that part of your game you will make some solid improvements (based on this hand and the other I've seen from you so far).

      Best of luck,

      Bogdan
