      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $4.85 (VPIP: 35.29, PFR: 5.88, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 18)
      Hero (SB): $10.30
      BB: $18.42 (VPIP: 26.97, PFR: 23.03, 3Bet Preflop: 18.87, Hands: 318)
      CO: $12.43 (VPIP: 34.29, PFR: 34.29, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 37)

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:club: A:club:

      CO raises to $0.30, fold, Hero raises to $1.10, fold, CO calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.30, 2 players) T:diamond: K:diamond: 8:spade:
      Hero bets $1.61, CO calls $1.61

      Turn: ($5.52, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($5.52, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Hero mucks J:club: A:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 75%, Flop 29%, Turn 16%)
      CO shows K:club: J:heart: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 25%, Flop 71%, Turn 84%)
      CO wins $5.16

      3-bet possible ? kind off hard to lay down this hand, looks so nice against a opponent who opens this much, even thought hand sample is very small. or better call to keep hands like A-trash and JX in ?

      do I give up too easy? or should I even not C-bet? can I try a bluff on the river? think if I bet 1/3 - 1/2 of pot I guess its hard to call without diamond but would be a pretty strange line I though so did not choose for that.

      I like your 3-bet for value. I would have made it 0.90 or 1$, although 1.10 is also fine.
      C-bet is fine, since you always have fold equity+ gutshot+overcard

      I would also give up that turn.

      If you want you can bluff river and bet 3.2. He would fold all his Kx, Tx hands that does nto have diamond

      best regards,
