      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:heart: , J:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), 3 folds, MP3 raises for $0.08, Hero 3-bets $0.24, 3 folds, MP3 calls

      Flop: ($0.51 - 25.50 bb) K:diamond: , T:diamond: , 9:heart: (2 Players)
      MP3 bets $0.24, Hero calls

      Turn: ($0.99 - 49.50 bb) 4:heart: (2 Players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.99 - 49.50 bb) T:heart: (2 Players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks


      MP3 was loose aggressive (limp/bet/call/3bet a lot). Stats 62/26/20 (3bet OoP) over 82 hands.

      Preflop: I 3bet light for value as his calling range should be super wide.

      Flop: not sure if I should raise his bet as I would be isolating myself vs worse hands + draws and most draws have a lot of outs. If he ships I would have to fold. So I decide to call him here, any safe turn and maybe even missed river depending on his bet sizing.
      Turn: lots of draws on the board but once again, I don't wanna be raised as I would have to fold. In retrospect, maybe betting for protection and thin value from draws would be better.
      River: I'm happy to check it down, not much value in betting.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine but since we are deep and he is fishy we should 3-bet larger.

      Postflop: As played you definitely want to bet/fold the turn. There are many worse hands that call us and if he reraises us we are almost always beat anyway.
