      Having trouble with this hand.

      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $2.26 (22.6 bb)
      CO: $19.25 (192.5 bb)
      BTN: $9.96 (99.6 bb)
      SB: $7.69 (76.9 bb)
      Hero (BB): $9.30 (93 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.35, BTN folds, SB calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.05, CO folds, SB calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.45) 5 J K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.45, SB calls $1.45

      Turn: ($5.35) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5.35) K (2 players)
      SB bets $5.19 and is all-in, Hero folds

      SB 17/4 over 23 hands
      CO 45/41 over 23 hands
      no history

      should i be 3betting here? I thought both players can call with worse but I think I should have 3bet a bigger size.

      would the SB's preflop calling range but Suited broadways and medium pocket pairs?
      I didn't know whether to Cbet or not because the pocket pairs should fold but he will continue with most of his broadways. and checking back felt weak

      the i gave up on the turn :( ???

      Hi Leylo,

      Preflop: looks fine and at least SB looks a bit more recreational (smaller stack) so we want to isolate him.

      Postflop: As played I think that your cbet is fine but you can make it even a bit smaller like 1.3 or so. His range can be pairs, connectors, broadways, etc. and we really don't know exactly but can assume.
