      Hero (BTN): 100 BB
      SB: 107.64 BB (VPIP: 25.43, PFR: 22.77, 3Bet Preflop: 8.84, Hands: 1,203)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB raises to 6 BB, fold, Hero calls 4 BB

      Flop: (13 BB, 2 players) T:club: 8:spade: 3:heart:
      SB bets 7 BB, Hero calls 7 BB

      Turn: (27 BB, 2 players) A:spade:
      SB bets 15 BB, Hero calls 15 BB

      River: (57 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      SB bets 6.5 BB, Hero calls 6.5 BB

      3bets sb 13%, vs bu 16%. cbet flop 57% turn 1/3. I float here because he cbets turn 1/3 (small sample) but at least he shows he gives up. 3bet range is 99, AK, 98s, AQ, A8o, KQo.
      His range also shows that he mostly doesnt hit this board.

      On turn I think it is a standard barrel on scare card with all his air. River it looks to me as obvious weak card, like Qx, or weak Ax, but I am not sure if he would call my raise, or it is a trap. How much should I raise? For me it was also important to see his card, so it was additional reason to call here, since I have 1.2k hands on him, and he plays quite often.

      Hey GingerKid,

      Preflop call is fine IP vs a wide 3better.

      You should float this flop pretty much always.

      Unimproved you might be able to fold to a turn barrel but not when you spike an Ace. As you also mention, if villain is even remotely competent this a decent barrel card for him.

      I'd tend towards flatting river. I expect that you have the best hand a decent amount, I just don't think worse is calling often enough. You'd need a hand like A5s or QKo to pay you off. It's possible villain may level himself into thinking you are bluffing after he's underbet the pot (I see it a lot). If you did raise it'd have to be small, no more than about 15BB imo, and fold vs river 3bet.
