      269 hands 12/8/ 3,3 3b/ 4 3b from BB

      IPoker, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $20.72 (103.6 bb)
      UTG: $28.10 (140.5 bb)
      MP: $27.99 (140 bb)
      CO: $29.26 (146.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $23.51 (117.6 bb)
      SB: $23.66 (118.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB raises to $1, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.10) A J T (2 players)
      BB bets $1.05, Hero calls $1.05

      Turn: ($4.20) 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $2.10, Hero calls $2.10

      River: ($8.40) 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      $8.40 pot ($0.42 rake)
      Final Board: A J T 9 4
      BB showed K A and won $7.98 ($3.83 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$4.15 net)

      His range is super strong. My plan is to call his min3b and fold if he shows aggression.

      This hand is just stupid. Calling flop is bad, but calling T is just stupid...

      My question is when we call his min3b preflop. Do we call J high flop and blank T or we must fold T vs this kind of player who plays just value hands?

      Hey Yax,

      Preflop: Given that we min raised and are BTN vs BB I don't think that we have to put him only on the nuts.

      However, As played the flop is terrible and the few hands we beat we no longer beat so simply fold.

      If it's Jxx or lower you can definitely play the hand
