      River: ($6.72 - 134.40 bb) 4:heart: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero checks


      BB was 10/2/1 over 312 - a nit basically.

      Preflop: I'm folding to any 3bet vs this guy but since he gives me good odds to set mine IP I stick around.

      Flop: His bet is really small and I'm figuring I could fold out his KK-QQ with a raise. He called and I put him on AK as he's 3beting AA.

      Turn: I'm glad to see a 9 so I bet for value now vs AK.

      River: no more value - if he has no heart he's folding and if he does I'm beat (given that he's a nit).

      The funny part is that he had AA with no :heart: :f_biggrin:

      Preflop calling is fine.

      With 1% 3bet I'm not even sure this guy 3bets AK, so I think his range is basically KK+ mostly.

      So having this said, I wouldn't really try to make this guy fold a hand like Kk in this spot and just fold.

      Once he calls, we should probably slow down on the turn here, even though we hit the set.
      I wouldn't really say you played this bad, since when playing I would probably just bet the turn as well, since we have a set in a 3bet pot, and there are other tables as well, but that's the good thing about HJ forums - you can think of the hands without playing and take a decision.
