      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 5 players

      SB: $24.57 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 6, 3B: 5, AF: 3,0, Hands: 65
      BB: $16.93 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 17, 3B: 14, AF: 2,0, Hands: 48
      UTG: $25.35 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 27
      CO: $26.41 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 11, AF: 0,0, Hands: 59
      Hero (BTN): $25.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 20, 3B: 10, AF: 5,6, Hands: 587

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with 6 :spade: A :club:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, CO calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.35) 3 :diamond: 5 :heart: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5.00, CO raises to $23.91, Hero calls $17.50 all in

      Turn: ($50.35) 8 :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($50.35) Q :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Flop: I decided to pot commit with a bigger bet so it would be easier to play.

      I think Ace is often a good out. 3 outs there, also 8 SD outs. Total of 11 outs.

      By the rule of 4, 11*4 = 44% equity to the river.

      I think, it's fine to play like this.
      Not sure If OP could put me more on draws when I pot.

      pre flop - why did you 3bet here? his PFR is pretty tight so A6 as a 3bet is a bluff. does he fold very often to 3bets pre flop? or fold often to CB in 3betpot? if this is not the case we might just want to fold pre flop. his range is too tight for us to make moves, we need to have something on him we can exploit otherwise A6o is too weak.

      flop - what did you think he calls with pre flop? im guessing pairs 77-QQ and overcards like AQ AJ KQ KJ AT etc. i think we can consider a check back here on the flop since i dont see much of those hands folding, unless he has a high fold to CB. if we are to bet here i think 2.8 for half pot is enough to encourage overcard hands like KQ to fold.

      as played his check-raise is very strong and his minimum holdings here is overpairs, nut flush draw etc which totally crushes our range and we can fold.
