      BTN: $4.85 (48.5 bb)
      SB: $8.18 (81.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $11.48 (114.8 bb)
      UTG: $7.78 (77.8 bb)
      MP: $9.90 (99 bb)
      CO: $9.85 (98.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 9
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.80, SB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 9 5 J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      Turn: ($2.20) A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      River: ($3.80) K (2 players)
      SB bets $6.28 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $3.80 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 9 5 J A K
      SB mucked and won $3.63 ($1.73 net)
      Hero mucked A 9 and lost (-$1.90 net)

      My thoughts:

      Villain is unknown so I assume that he will be stealing from the SB with some % so I don't mind 3betting here with A9s. Even if he calls, I can have the better ace here.

      I flop 2nd pair and when he bets so small I think it's an easy call and see what he does OTT.

      I don't know how often he double barrel bluffs, but I imagine it to be a small %, however, this maybe a good card to do so (that's if he is thinking about that). But I think I can call he as he v-bets worse and doesn't call worse when I raise (maybe AK?).

      Hi Samboro,

      Preflop: given he is not full stacked we can assume he is a recreational player so our 3-bet is more for value than as a bluff.

      Postflop: I think that your passive line on the turn is very weak because villains range there has a lot more weaker hands than strong ones and we want to get value from them.

      I'd raise turn and ship river.
