      Hero shows J:club: A:club: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 76%, Flop 16%, Turn 75%)
      CO shows 7:diamond: J:spade: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 24%, Flop 84%, Turn 25%)
      CO wins $2.29

      This opponent seems to be passive bad so:
      1) no bluffs vs him (I doubt he would fold his small flush on the river)
      2) value bets wider & bigger

      I played this hand almost at the same moment as the previous one but didn't have the info about the opp at the time I've decided to 3bet preflop, now I think it's a pretty bad 3bet, should have been fold OOP vs him.

      Small bets on the turn & river are to not to value bet myself mainly. I doubt he would call smth worse to my bigger bets (like PPs) but it's possible I think.

      Hi.

      Flop: This could be played similarly to the AQ hand I posted on previously, by check/calling 2 streets. However when we have a backdoor flush draw to go with our hand, I think betting for thin value/bluff potential is now an option. We basically have more barreling opportunities now, when around 20% of the deck will give us a turned flush draw.

      Turn: I think your bet is good, don't bet too large here when the flush completes

      River: Now c/f.

      Preflop: We should be flatting here vs a min-raise. We are getting 22.2% pot odds, which is really great for defending such a hand. I'm sure we have 35%+ equity vs most BU opening ranges.

      Flop: I think checking is fine

      Turn: You can bet or check again. I don't think you have more than one street of value though, so I would c/c Turn and if turn is checked through i would then bet River.

      After that guy limp\calls J7o I think he would play the same way with many similar-look hands so mayhap should we assume his OR tighter? We can remove weak suited kings, queens, hands like K8o, K9o I think... To be honest I don't feel confident playing A3o OOP vs this guy after I assume he is passive bad :( Or am I missing +EV opportunity?

      Pot odds are super good, we can never be making a huge mistake by defending A3o here.

      MP3 64.98% 63.55% 1.43% { 77+, A9s+, KTs+, QTs+, AJo+, KQo }

      This is still more than enough to defend A3o here. While postflop may be a little tougher to play, still we are up against bad opposition. I think we should be able to make decent decisions and not screw up too badly.
