      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 110 BB
      CO: 29.26 BB (VPIP: 15.69, PFR: 5.88, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 51)
      BTN: 101.78 BB (VPIP: 22.50, PFR: 19.25, 3Bet Preflop: 7.66, Hands: 3,848)
      SB: 114.42 BB (VPIP: 21.32, PFR: 18.62, 3Bet Preflop: 7.10, Hands: 3,084)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, BTN raises to 2.5 BB, fold, Hero raises to 7 BB, BTN raises to 17 BB, Hero calls 10 BB

      Flop: (34.5 BB, 2 players) K:diamond: 3:diamond: 9:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 14 BB, Hero calls 14 BB

      Turn: (62.5 BB, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: (62.5 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows A:heart: A:diamond: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 92%, Flop 98%, Turn 100%)
      BTN shows Q:club: A:spade: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 8%, Flop 2%, Turn 0%)
      Hero wins 59.38 BB

      Is it ok to call his 4bet? He 4bets 22% bu steals 52%. Since sometimes I call with suited cards, this way I balance it. Is river check ok? He seems like he gave up on turn, and he could have JJ, but also could try to represent flush.

      Hi GingerKid,

      Preflop: Given the positions we are in and his stats I would assume he is very loose and stacks off lighter. Thus I can't see why I'd want to slowplay a monster rather than just cooler him.

      Slowplaying is great here if we can expect to make a lot more from calling (for example if villain is super aggro post or stacks off light postflop).

      Since we slowplayed our hand why not ck/raise the flop small?

      I think that betting small on the river is better than checking. I doubt he valuebets a small diamond and he may call one.
