      BU 9 hands 67/11
      BB 13 hands 25/17

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($4.35)
      BB ($3.28)
      UTG ($7)
      UTG+1 ($4.05)
      Hero ($11.02)
      BTN ($17.88)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: A:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, BB raises to $1.10, Hero raises to $2.80, BTN calls $2.50, BB raises to $3.28 (AI), Hero calls $0.48, BTN calls $0.48

      FLOP ($9.89) K:diamond: 8:spade: 5:club:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      TURN ($9.89) K:diamond: 8:spade: 5:club: T:heart:

      Hero bets $7.74 (AI), BTN folds

      RIVER ($9.89) K:diamond: 8:spade: 5:club: T:heart: 9:heart:

      BB shows 4:diamond: 9:diamond:
      (Pre 38%, Flop 7.6%, Turn 0.0%)

      Hero shows K:heart: A:spade:
      (Pre 62%, Flop 92.4%, Turn 100.0%)

      Hero wins $9.24

      Since opponents are unknown, my preflop line is to 4b/call vs BB and if BU 5b shoves I'm folding.

      On T I should bet sth like $2,70 because we get it on the R anyhow. I was afraid to miss some value since he can call/ fold R. But I don't like my shove on T. Although I would have tough decision on this R.

      I didn't go for cbet on this flop because he folds every PP which I might get some value on later streets.

      Hey Yaxkukmian,

      4bet preflop is fine - usually not expecting a flat from BTN. Usually he won't be that strong after preflop flat - so plenty of PP's maybe the occasional weak broadway or SC.

      Hence I think your line on the flop is decent. Villain is weak and it will be difficult to extract value. Unfortunately he probably won't bluff much either seeing as there is a dry side-pot, but he may bet worse for value.

      Turn, I agree with your comments and would probably bet small on turn and then bet the river to hopefully price villain in with any worse pairs.
