      Hero bets $3.75, BTN calls $3.75

      River: ($15.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11

      Im normally not calling pre-flop here, but the 3bet was so small that i wanted to speculate.
      Its correct to say that if im betting the turn i should also bet the river? To make him fold AX... the spade was helpful i think.

      Hey, I have played some similar spots. Once I called preflop 98s ip cause thought opponent made too small 3bet. I've lost the hand to a bigger flush.

      Since my opinion is we have to play more likely 4bet vs small 3bets. Just to get a note about sizing. Villians reaction vs 4bet will show us his actual range of such 3betting. But don't make a small 4bet, because most of the time opponent will call it.

      As played I don't like the bluf, I would check-fold every street here.

      Hey Lunitis,

      Preflop call is not good even if villain's sizing is small.

      I prefer betting river if you bet turn, especially given that you have 6-high. Smaller turn bet works in your favour here also, and allows villain to reach river with wider range.

      I'd probably just not fire at all though. I think there will be much better spots. Would have folded preflop also.
