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

      SB: $8.21
      BB: $18.00
      Hero (UTG): $13.27
      CO: $8.84
      BTN: $12.66

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:club: J:spade:

      Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to $1.10, Hero calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.25, 2 players) 2:spade: 7:diamond: 5:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.10, BB calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.45, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.17, BB calls $3.17

      River: ($10.79, 2 players) 3:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.20, BB calls $3.20

      Hero shows J:club: J:spade: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 20%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      BB shows A:heart: A:diamond: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 80%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      BB wins $16.34

      Villain is loose 42/29 - 38 hands, no info about 3bet pots.

      On such board I went for 3 streets of value.
      vierd that villains Af is 7.5 so far and high Cbet on flop and he did not shove on any street.
      Lucky me that still had few $ left after this hand and did not give away all stack.

      Hey Ilioas,

      This is the 3rd hand I've looked at today where you've shown a lack of awareness of 3betting vs EP dynamics. Even if BB is a loose player in general, his range for 3betting BB vs UTG usually has JJ crushed.

      You have 2 options. Fold vs 3bet, or setmine because the stacks are a little deeper and you have good implieds vs a strong range.

      I'd take the second option in this case. This means on a 752r where you miss your set, you need to give up and check the hand down. If villain checks the turn to you then maybe you can put in a small bet for protection. You certainly do not have 3 streets of value here. The only thing you beat is AK and that will pay off one street max, if any.
