      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 3 players

      BB: $31.36 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 17, 3B: 40, AF: 0,5, Hands: 12
      Hero (BTN): $25.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 20, 3B: 10, AF: 5,6, Hands: 587
      SB: $26.59 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 33, 3B: 25, AF: 1,0, Hands: 12

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with J :diamond: A :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.62, 1 fold, BB raises to $2, Hero calls $1.38

      Flop: ($4.10) K :club: T :spade: 2 :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      Turn: ($8.60) K :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4.25, BB calls $4.25

      River: ($17.10) 3 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $16.50, BB calls $16.50

      Preflop: Vaillain started to tilt me with his 3bets so I call.

      Flop: IMO, he will be here his all range, so I decided to float.

      Turn: Not sure If I have to float on paired board. Probably his range gets stronger and mine weaker ...
      I could as well check back turn to see free river.

      River: Spew after spew.

      Hey Anger86,

      Vs an unknown I'd fold your AJs preflop. It's fine to defend if you know villain is 3betting light, but presumably you don't at this stage.

      On the flop, if we are working under the assumption that villain might be light we should definitely call at least one street.

      Turn, I like your bluff here. You might be surprised at how little you need to bet in this situation for a profitable bluff. You can go even smaller than half pot, make it look you have a Kx and desperately want a call.

      I'd probably jsut give up on river. You even beat some hands in a light 3betting range like JQ or 9J. Most hands better than AJ are not folding, especially with the K paired. It's hard for opponent to put you on a K when two are already out there. It's really easy for opponent to play AA this way, and assuming he holds a hand like QQ/JJ he's less likely to fold. Tricky Kx is of course, never folding.
