      BU seems loose and aggressive 42/38/6.0 3bet 27% after 24 hands.. not much but an indication.

      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $36.16 (361.6 bb)
      SB: $36.43 (364.3 bb)
      BB: $1.53 (15.3 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $17.41 (174.1 bb)
      MP: $9.55 (95.5 bb)
      CO: $4.52 (45.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, SB folds, BB raises to $1.53 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.23, BTN calls $1.23

      I decided to flat to keep BU in the hand, felt that raising would look too strong.

      Flop: ($4.64) 9 3 9 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero bets $2.40, BTN calls $2.40

      Cbet (is it a donk?) kind of small, I was thinking to check back, but what 9's would he call pf? A9? K9? maybe T9, or 89, but it's a small part of his range. When he flats, I think flush draw, or more likely pocket pairs 77, 88, TT, JJ.

      Turn: ($9.44) K (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.10, Hero raises to $13.48 and is all-in

      Turn check raise for value. I was a bit concerned about the stack size earlier in the hand but thought calling wasn't an option, I'd not know what to do on the river.

      Considering BU's stats and the fact that we are deep, I'd rather 4bet like $2.8 preflop.

      As played, I like betting on the flop.

      I don't really like check/shoving the turn being so deep - I would rather bet around $4 here.
