      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.75, BU calls $0.75, SB folds, Hero raises to $3.10, CO folds, BU calls $2.35.

      Flop: ($7.05) 9, 6, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, BU calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($14.05) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $8.00, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $14.05.

      CO 263 hands vpip19 pfr17 wtsd10 fold to 3 bet 100                          BU 212 hands vpip23 pfr18 wtsd10 fold to 3 bet 57 call 43      

      BU is a regular,so his hand can be AQ,KQ,QJs,JJ,TT,99,88 I think.
      so there are a lot of PPs in his range,so it should be check fold?
      or triple barrel? or check raise all in on the turn?

      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Preflop squeeze for value is fine.

      Usually the worst thing you can do here is fire one and give up. Villain is probably floating 1 with most of his range.

      You either want to c/f flop or 2-barrel to ensure he ditches any PP's. Check/raising may be an option, it allows you to trap a little more money in vs wide floaters. In most cases without solid postflop reads it's going to be better and lower variance to just c/f flop.
