      BB: $1.15 (57.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.24 (112 bb)
      MP: $1.20 (60 bb)
      CO: $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.06 (103 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4 4
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.06, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.14) A A 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.26, CO raises to $0.78, Hero folds

      $0.66 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: A A 6
      CO mucked and won $0.62 ($0.30 net)
      Hero mucked 4 4 and lost (-$0.32 net)

      Villain is a reg, 25/22 over 208 hands, 100% cbet over 13 hands.

      Pre flop, can we also go for a 3bet here? He has an 86% fold to 3bet. Then again, we are getting good odds to set mine, but we will be out of position so it might be tough to get value if we do hit.

      On the flop I decided to check/raise him because he had been cbetting a ton, and this was a super dry board. I didn't really want to call out of position, because I wouldn't really know where I would be at in the hand on the turn. If a check/raise is good here, to how much should we raise here?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: looks fine but a 3-bet bluff if he opens a lot and folds a lot is fine too.

      Postflop: The problem with checkraising is that you don't rep much either so some guys don't like folding. However, i think that you may get enough folds at these limits from mostly air. As played I'd raise smaller and fold to a 3-bet.
