      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 3 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $20.40 (102 bb)
      SB: $20 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $20.30 (101.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q K
      BTN raises to $0.80, SB folds, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.70) 9 9 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.70, Hero folds

      $1.70 pot ($0.08 rake)
      Final Board: 9 9 4
      BTN mucked and won $1.62 ($0.82 net)
      Hero mucked Q K and lost (-$0.80 net)

      steal in BTN 88 (8)

      Stats are from 4-6 handed mostly.

      he is agro on flop and turn and passive on river. BUt I cannot call probably call 2 streets with K high so then I could raise flop with overcards and bd fd. But my raise vs pot size raise make pot big.

      Still it might be that he has some pair with this pot size, not just bluff. So is this defeanbable or just give up?

      Why don't you 3b this hand preflop

      1. 3 hand table
      2. villain looks like loose aggro and he can see that this is 3 hand table so he steal lots and he is more likely to fold or call with worste and u can bet/fold some good flops
      3. by 3beting u have good CR u are blocking all AK/AQ/KK/QQ/ dominating hands KJ/KT/K9 QJ/QT/Q9

      there I am not sure if this is for fold equity or for value. You say I block Kx Qx so you mean I get more folds. Then at the same time I block K2 K3 which we want to get calls.

      He could be calling, but his openrasie is 4 bb so I think pot control line is good.

      Hi Speed,

      I think that 3-handed we can 3-bet for value a wider range here, including this hand.

      Of course we would still not go broke with it but we can get value from a wider calling range.

      As played the flop is a fold without info and his large bet.
