      CO: 71.5 BB (VPIP: 66.67, PFR: 33.33, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:spade: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 4 BB, fold, Hero raises to 12 BB, fold, CO calls 8 BB

      Flop: (25 BB, 2 players) J:spade: 4:diamond: T:club:
      Hero bets 15 BB, CO calls 15 BB

      Turn: (55 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets 16 BB, fold

      CO wins 53 BB

      Maybe I shouldn't have tried to basically steal from the SB. I saw the 67% VP from the cutoff and thought he was trying to steal and wasn't pleased when he called.

      The flop looked pretty good for me as I had middle pair so I cbet. Is it a better idea to check/fold here? I think I pretty much have to check the turn and fold if he bets...

      Preflop I don't mind 3betting here.

      As played, if we go for a cbet on this flop, then we'll have to make a good plan for the turn, since we are likely to get quite on this kind of board since it his his calling range pretty well.

      Overall, being OOP I don't mind check/folding since we will have hard time playing on the later streets.

      Turn is quite bad here, so check/folding is fine.
