      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $15.51 (155.1 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.79 (107.9 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $37.97 (379.7 bb)
      CO: $10.17 (101.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6 K
      MP calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.45, BTN calls $0.45, Hero raises to $1.40, 3 folds, BTN calls $0.95

      Flop: ($3.45) 5 A 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.58, BTN raises to $14.11 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $8.61 pot ($0.43 rake)
      Final Board: 5 A 3
      BTN mucked and won $8.18 ($4.20 net)
      Hero mucked 6 K and lost (-$3.98 net)

      PF I squeeze because CO is a very loose raiser. And BU is definitely calling with many speculative hands like connectors, low PPs.

      Flop is always a cbet right? (to get connectors and PPs to fold) Maybe I can make the bet slightly smaller. 1/2 pot probably looks weak on such a board but how often will villain try a complete bluff here? I believe most ppl won't float without a draw in such a big pot too.

      Pre flop - firstly K6o is too wide a hand to be 3bet bluffing with and if you know button is going to call you want to 3bet good hands with good playability something like A9s+ or K9s+.

      Flop - on A high boards like this people usually fold all their Broadway and don't continue without the A or flush draw. When he raises like that it's usually Ax or 2pair.the worst he has here is flush draw but there's nothing we can do against that either.
