      MP3 is unknown.

      Preflop: Calling for set value. I could have 3betted for value but I think it's close.
      In retrospect, judging from his stack size I think could have raised for value assuming unknowns are usually loose passive.

      Flop: His cbet is so small and I may be ahead AK, AJ and lower PPs so I call.
      Turn: an ace helps for a big part of his range. I have a 2nd nut FD and am not sure if I can't get value from lower PPs so I just check behind.
      River: his bet was confusing since he should weakness on the turn. However, I opted to fold as it's unlikely that he turns a weaker made hand (like lower PP) into a bluff and I'm beat against his value range.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: We should look at all the info available. The stack sizes tells us that he is a recreational player and he opened small so I would like to 3-bet for value.

      Postflop: I agree with your postflop line on this board.

      Qx are part of his range that bet small on flop and check back the turn.

      Hi Bogdan

      Thanks for the insight regarding 3bet for value. I agree that that is a better option vs loose passive, i.e. recreational, players. Thanks!
