      MP: 14.82 BB (VPIP: 14.29, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 7)
      CO: 225.64 BB (VPIP: 29.33, PFR: 14.99, 3Bet Preflop: 4.66, Hands: 1,409)
      Hero (BTN): 100 BB
      SB: 105.5 BB (VPIP: 19.73, PFR: 14.86, 3Bet Preflop: 8.05, Hands: 376)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 5:spade: 6:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB raises to 7 BB, fold, Hero calls 5 BB

      Flop: (15 BB, 2 players) 9:spade: 5:club: 3:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (15 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      SB bets 9 BB, Hero calls 9 BB

      River: (33 BB, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows 5:spade: 6:spade: (Two Pair, Nines and Fives) (Pre 41%, Flop 79%, Turn 86%)
      SB shows A:spade: K:heart: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 59%, Flop 21%, Turn 14%)
      Hero wins 31.36 BB

      Is it ok to defend this hand? 3bet 22% vs bu.
      not much info postflop.

      Should I bet flop to fold him, or better pot control and bluff catch turn at least? Q is bad card, but would you fold river?

      Hey Gingerkid,

      I think you should be able to defend sufficiently often vs 3bets without needing to include a hand as weak as 65s. I doubt you need to go much wider than about T9s - and also think about slowplaying your value range unless villain will 5-bet light.

      I would usually just bet the flop for protection. It's true you have an ok bluff-catcher, but most turns will be bad for you and make bluff-catching awkward if you are unsure of villain's frequencies.
