      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.02), Hero posts big blind ($0.05), 3 folds, CO raises for $0.15, 2 folds, Hero 3-bets $0.45, CO calls

      Flop: ($1.02 - 20.40 bb) T:heart: , 9:diamond: , 2:spade: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls

      Turn: ($2.22 - 44.40 bb) 2:diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $1.40, CO raises for $2.80, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled back ($1.40)


      CO was 18/5/1 over 290 with AF of 1.

      Though his PFR is quite low I think that I still have value in 3betting as he seems to be quite loose.

      I think he is capable of calling my 3bet with 88+, AT+, KQ, QJ, JT. So I'm bet/folding for value.

      Again, bet/folding for value vs same hands he couldn't fold on the flop.
      When he raises it's an ugly spot but I doubt he ever bluffs or raises worse.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: It's a bit of a thin 3-bet versus him and since we are OOp I would make it larger. You can check his open in the CO to see how wide he opens.

      You say that he can call with 88+, AT+, KQ, QJ, JT but that's almost 12% of all hands. Does he even open that wide and that would assume that he never folds to a 3-bet so I think it's very optimistic at best.

      As played we have an easy fold on the turn as i doubt he raises anything worse.
