      119 hands 26/23/9,8 3b/ 17 3b from SB

      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $9.88 (98.8 bb)
      CO: $11.95 (119.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10.46 (104.6 bb)
      SB: $10.25 (102.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 9
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $0.70, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.15, SB calls $1.45

      Flop: ($4.40) T K A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($4.40) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.20, Hero calls $2.20

      River: ($8.80) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $8.80 pot ($0.58 rake)
      Final Board: T K A 5 T
      Hero mucked A 9 and won $8.22 ($3.87 net)
      SB showed Q Q and lost (-$4.35 net)


      I chose 4b because of his stats. I would rather like to see a better hand to do it with but at the time I decided this one is good enough.

      I flop TPNK. Board is draw heavy but I don't think I can get value from worse hands. My plan is to bet T and see how the board develops maybe even c behind R.

      Before calling T donk I was also thinking about R calling.

      R is quite good. When he c he seems weak but since we split all Ax I wasn't sure. Now I see he might be calling me with Kx if I bet 1/3 pot.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine given positions, hand and villain

      Postflop: I think that both betting small (1.5) and checking back are fine. Betting would get value from JJ/QQ and KQ type hands.

      I think that as played you should just check the river back. There's not a lot of value in a bet.

      Your BU 2x open is standart i guess, right?
      Why we 4bet so big? Something like 1.80-1.85$ isnt enough?

      I think around 19-21 BB is fine when they 3-bet smaller.
