      Hi,
      BU 24/24/70hands
      No stats on 3bet pots

      Thought about flatting pre, but I don't know about his postflop tendancies & it seemed a bit marginal calling with BB to act so I didn't mind having a hand this strong in my 3b bluff range & just taking it down immediately.

      Consider checking flop & going for two streets?

      I think checking turn was a mistake, my reasoning was that he probably doesn't have too many floats & hands like JJ & TT most likely check behind & I can bet river.

      If he does have some air I expected him to bluff turn & shut down most rivers.

      I think the best line would be bet/bet/check or check/bet/bet.

      OTR I think he can be valuebetting KQ+, <QJ probably check back.

      .

      BTN: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $70.72 (141.4 bb)
      BB: $37.89 (75.8 bb)
      UTG: $50.97 (101.9 bb)
      MP: $29.37 (58.7 bb)
      CO: $48.25 (96.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q T
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $4.25, BB folds, BTN calls $3.25

      Flop: ($9) 6 5 Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, BTN calls $4.50

      Turn: ($18) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $9, Hero calls $9

      River: ($36) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $32.50 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results:
      $36 pot ($1.62 rake)
      Final Board: 6 5 Q 4 8
      BTN mucked and won $34.38 ($16.63 net)
      Hero mucked Q T and lost (-$17.75 net)

      Hi.

      Preflop: 3-betting this usually, but with BB being a fish I think this is a pretty easy call.

      Flop: Your options are to bet F c/c T or to c/c F c/c T. Both are decent.

      Turn: C/C is fine. Your hand is definitely not good enough for 3 streets here so I don't think you can continue betting for value especially when there's no flush draw on the board. So I don't think you are getting too many light calls from hands like 88-TT on the Turn.

      River: Hmm this is close - How are you playing QJ and QK on the Turn and River? This could be a call here, especially if you have many weaker QX hands as well as TT/JJ in your Turn c/c range.

      TY sir, I think I bet KQ OTT & decide river >KQ is prob three streets.

      QJo, so without backdoors I would lean towards betting turn/checking river.
      QJs with backdoors I probably play the same as QTs.

      JJ/TT I would probably c/c turn. I would also be temped to c/c flop with these hands.

      QJ is probably a check for me and JJ/TT is a check on the Flop for me.

      Anyway I think it's a fold now, a bunch of 7X hands improve and you should have reads here on how villain plays in 3-bet pots before making loose calls. We need to know how wide villain is floating on the Flop. If he never has stuff like AJ or J:sT here then we can probably fold river cos he rarely has a bluff here and a ton of twopairs or straights.
