      SB is 59/32 AF 1.3 over 130 hands, fold to 3bet 42% over 12 occasions

      SB checks, Hero bets $0.68, SB folds

      Hero shows K:spade: A:club:

      Hero wins $1.71

      I think BU bet bigger since he knew SB is probably going to call, I wouldnt like to play my AKo 3way so I raised to isolate myself with SB, also I was pretty tight on this table so even reason more for BU to be inclined to fold if he is paying attention to players

      SB has 33% fold to cbet over 12 occasions...I know I am probably not going to make him fold out his hand and I wouldnt feel comfortable to start building big pot if I havent hit I check the flop and also check the turn card, probably not going to get called by worse now here anyway

      I bet smaller on river to maybe get a call by his Ax air that feels suspicious or some PP he might had, think bigger bet will probably scare him away more

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine, we want to isolate SB

      Postflop: With position, overcards and some backdoors we can cbet the flop for thin value (and we wouldn't even mind taking it down).

      As played I think that your river bet is fine, to get called by small pairs and Ax.
