      BB: 104.24 BB (VPIP: 18.73, PFR: 14.72, 3Bet Preflop: 9.09, Hands: 309)
      UTG: 90.14 BB (VPIP: 12.50, PFR: 12.50, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      MP: 100 BB (VPIP: 23.10, PFR: 17.63, 3Bet Preflop: 7.81, Hands: 337)
      CO: 189.3 BB (VPIP: 21.93, PFR: 18.22, 3Bet Preflop: 1.96, Hands: 278)
      BTN: 103.5 BB (VPIP: 19.95, PFR: 16.35, 3Bet Preflop: 8.09, Hands: 1,655)
      Hero (SB): 106.8 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: Q:club:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, UTG calls 5 BB

      Flop: (15 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond: 3:diamond: T:club:
      Hero bets 9 BB, UTG calls 9 BB

      Turn: (33 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: (33 BB, 2 players) 5:club:
      Hero bets 24.74 BB, UTG calls 24.74 BB

      I 3bet this hand or fold OOP. Versus utg I mostly fold unless he is fish, but this guy opens only 1$ which is imo often weak PP, or connectors.
      Maybe better not to cbet flop? Because he hits it often and I dont, I dont have backdoor fd? I thought I could barrel turn if 9, J, Q, K, A comes, since some of them brings me outs, and some are scare cards.
      I am not sure if I should bet turn. He probably doesnt call 3 streets with PP, and I wanted to bet river if he checks, and to bluff catch maybe his AJ,AK and similar.

      hi there, i think in today's games, regs have more or less a standard pfr size depending on positions and doesnt change that much base on their holdings when being first to raise pre.
      i think a cbet is justifiable here. he folds alot of underpair and cards that just dont connect 9bb to win 15bb so he jut have to fold something like 37.5% for the move to be 0EV. we can also keep barreling on worse cards.
      when we check, our options are more limited, but we can use to combat more aggro players who tend to raise our cbets more often.
