      BTN: $4.13
      SB: $7.15
      Hero (BB): $7.24
      UTG: $2.76
      MP: $5.02
      CO: $5.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with A :spade: K :diamond:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.10, SB raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.75, 1 fold, SB calls $0.45

      Flop: ($1.60) 6 :spade: K :heart: T :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB calls $0.70

      Turn: ($3.00) A :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.70, SB folds

      PF: Think I'm most likely ahead or flipping versus SB's range even though he is unknown.

      Unsure on the 3-bet size, is 2.5x enough here or should it be more like 3x?

      F: I'm ahead and don't think villain will have hearts draw very often so I bet less than half pot hopefully to get QQ or JJ to call as well as KQ or KJ.

      T: I'm worried opponent will have gutshot + flush draw so I bet a bit bigger.

      Looking back I think I definitely missed value on the flop, how much are you opting to c-bet when valuing betting in 3-bet pots?

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: Given SB 3-bet so small I would agree that we are most likely ahead. You are 4-betting preflop (not 3-bet) but your size is fine.

      Postflop: As played I would bet at least 60% on the flop and go from there. Turn is a bet.
