      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $69.87 (139.7 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $19.94 (39.9 bb)
      Hero (MP): $57.07 (114.1 bb)
      CO: $13.26 (26.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 8:club: 8:spade:
      Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($4.75) 3:spade: 3:club: 3:diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $2.25, Hero raises to $4.50, CO folds, BB calls $2.25

      Turn: ($13.75) T:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4, BB folds

      BB is 41/11, 30%agg.freq over 27hands
      The other guy is a fish too.

      I think raising the flop for value is better. If i just call, the other guy might call as well and i wouldn`t like most of the turn cards. Size? I decided to min raise, to get a call from Ax hands.

      On the turn, i decided to bet small to, maybe, induce a shove from Ax hands?

      Hi Achilles,

      What's our plan if we get 3-bet? I would say that we'd have to fold if he had 100 BB but with 40 BB I think we would have to go with the hand.

      As played I'd raise to $5.5-$6.

      As played I like your inducer bet as long as we don't fold.
