      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $18.46 (92.3 bb)
      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $23.73 (118.7 bb)
      MP: $26.41 (132 bb)
      CO: $20 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $26.09 (130.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30, BB folds

      Flop: ($1) T K T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $1.80, Hero calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.60) K (2 players)
      SB bets $2.80, Hero calls $2.80

      River: ($10.20) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks


      Should 3 bet the flop? not sure what calls though....

      I think the K is a pretty good card for us, as i think Kx hands would x/c flop rather than x/r. So i think he never really has a K

      should we be raising anywhere to get stacks in?

      Hiya,

      Call or 3bet flop are +EV for sure. Personally, I view calling as better here since there aren't enough Tx hands in his range and Kx check/calls like you said. Therefore I think he has air so often... It's a difficult decision in the sense that some players view a raise here weaker than a call. Moral of the story: try to look weak. I think call is weaker here imo.

      As played on flop, I don't see a raise anywhere, but I do see a bet on the river. He doesn't have Kx, he can have QJ, AJ, AQ, you have value imo.

      yeah, I at no point could i see a hand calling a raise.

      So on river we should go small like €3 to get a call from said range?

      Heh, I think 3 is too small.. half pot or bigger. I think shoving also makes sense against someone we know to be quite fishy because most fish think: I have a straight, he'd milk me with the nuts, I call.
