      Hi, BU 36/21/ 14hands

      Preflop should probably be a 3b for value, but I think calling is ok too.

      Just c/r flop? I was a bit hesitant since the board was paired & I rep so little, so plan was to c/c flop, then c/c or c/r good turns.
      If turn checks through & I miss I would lead most rivers.

      Once he bet so small OTT I thought it was a decent spot to raise since he looks like he's block betting weakish pairs. Maybe 99 TT JJ, also some random air/draws which I can make him fold OTR.

      Didn't think the Kh helps him often so decided to follow through with my bluff.
      Looking back though turn is probably just an odds call :D

      BTN: $20.58 (82.3 bb)
      SB: $8.31 (33.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $33.07 (132.3 bb)
      UTG: $21.86 (87.4 bb)
      MP: $37.83 (151.3 bb)
      CO: $35.21 (140.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A J
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, SB folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 4 8 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.10) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1, Hero raises to $4.25, BTN calls $3.25

      River: ($12.60) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.25, BTN calls $7.25

      $27.10 pot ($1.22 rake)
      Final Board: 4 8 4 Q K
      BTN showed J Q and won $25.88 ($12.38 net)
      Hero showed A J and lost (-$13.50 net)

      Preflop: Good to know his opening range from BU, and his fold to 3b. My gut tells me it's a 3b for value especially if this guy is a fish.

      I don't like raising the Turn especially vs fish. What purpose does it serve? Do you think he ever folds QX here?

      Fish mentality: Oh I have a pair. CALL

      I prefer c/c Turn. Don't forget if he is barreling a draw, we have Ace high and that's the best hand. Hope he shuts down on the River and we will win the hand. If we hit on the River, I would lead about 2/3 pot and I think the fish will often call if he has top pair.
