      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $10.00 19/16 - 477 hands F3bet 82 Af1.3
      UTG: $10.15
      CO: $11.11
      BTN: $10.00
      Hero (SB): $27.95

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:club: A:club:

      UTG raises to $0.40, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.20, BB calls $1.10, fold

      Flop: ($2.80, 2 players) 2:heart: 4:spade: T:spade:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Turn: ($2.80, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($2.80, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

      Preflop: standart 3bet. Unexpected cold call from BB.

      Flop is dry, I keep pot small and see what action develops.

      Turn: still dry but do not have equity like flush draw+overcards and check

      River: I guess here villains range has only pairs and maybe some AK. So even if plan was to split at best, I should have just folded instead.

      Hey Iloas,

      Preflop 3bet OOP vs UTG open will not be the best play here. "Standard" option is to flat AK vs EP openers. I don't know why you think BB will definitely cold-call if he is playing 19/16.

      Postflop line is fine. BB is usually reasonably strong after cold-calling a 3bet. I don't hate the river call, T is a good card for you. I think folding is fine, many players at this limit will end up betting a 2x or 4x regardless of whether it's logical to assume they will get called by worse.
