      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , Q:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), 3 folds, CO calls, Hero raises for $0.10, 2 folds, CO 3-bets $0.20, Hero calls

      River: ($5.05 - 252.50 bb) 5:heart: (2 Players)


      Villain limp/3betted me and since the 3bet was small I decided to call in position.

      Flop call was, I think, standard.

      On turn I wasn't sure whether to bet or check as it was still hard for me to put limp/3betters on some range.
      I opted for a bet to get value from AJ, QJ, Ax of clubs.

      In retrospect, there aren't many hands in his range that I beat that would c/call on the turn. Hands I beat that would limp/3bet, bet flop and c/call turn:
      QQ, AcJc & AcTc, KQ (5 + 6 combos)
      Hands that beat me:
      AA, AK, AQ, KK, JJ, TT, KJ, KT (45 combos)

      However, I opted to bet and got raised. I needed 31.35% of equity to break-even and against the above ranges I don't have it (even if I include combos that I beat/tie):
      Board: KcJs7cTd
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 25.93% 19.36% 6.57% { KhQc }
      MP3 74.07% 67.49% 6.57% { TT+, AQs+, KTs+, AcJc, AcTc, AQo+, KTo+ }

      Is my reasoning correct?

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: limp 3-bets are generally strong unless villain has been seen to take this line often. Calling, given the odds, is fine but we don't want to play a huge pot without a strong hand.

      Postflop: As played the turn should be an insta muck.

      Since we got min 3-bet I would just check back the turn and take my free card and look to get to showdown and learn more about the villain.
