      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 100 BB
      BB: 117.32 BB (VPIP: 16.99, PFR: 15.69, 3Bet Preflop: 5.97, Hands: 153)
      UTG: 100 BB (VPIP: 23.40, PFR: 18.81, 3Bet Preflop: 12.57, Hands: 470)
      CO: 102.88 BB (VPIP: 17.95, PFR: 12.82, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 40)
      BTN: 173.94 BB (VPIP: 24.02, PFR: 16.22, 3Bet Preflop: 8.33, Hands: 688)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) 4:heart: K:heart: K:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 5 BB, Hero calls 5 BB

      Turn: (17 BB, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 12 BB, Hero calls 12 BB

      River: (41 BB, 2 players) 8:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 36 BB, Hero calls 36 BB

      He attemts to steal wide 50%, and I think I have better hand preflop most of the time. He cbets 75%, turn 70% river 60%, and he represents here only Kx, and 22. So I call turn and hope he gives up river, or plan to call river. I think he never barrels like this hands which have showdown value other than Kx, 22, and he knows I dont have Kx or 22 because I would play it more aggresive at least on turn.

      I think bluffcacthing here is a bit overly ambitious. When opening from BU he can have many Kx, 44, 55, 88 and could have barreled AA or QQ for value. That makes it a fold for me.. I don't like bluffactching too light against people that clearly arent just random maniacs. This is a spot where your opponent can bluff with a hand better than yours which makes it even worse to bluffcatch.
