      SB is 25/25/8 hands (no reads)

      K on river looks like good card to bluff, but its quite expensive.
      Also your advice on preflop. Call or 3bet? No info about his range on SB open so i decided to 3bet

      Preflop: calling is definitely the best play vs most opponents. I would imagine the average oponent opening at least 25% if not more and A9o is good enough to call vs such a range.

      Flop: really ugly flop but betting cant be too bad when u have a gutshot. Your bet size is way too large for a 3b pot, 2/3 should suffice.

      River: i dont think a bet is particularly good or bad here - i doubt villain ever folds JX and he probably folds worse pairs. Betsize looks fine.
