      Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (UTG): $50.34 (100.7 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $61.81 (123.6 bb)
      BTN: $51.88 (103.8 bb)
      SB: $80.37 (160.7 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K J
      Hero raises to $1.50, 3 folds, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 3 J T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.30, SB calls $2.30

      Turn: ($8.10) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($8.10) T (2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero raises to $12,


      SB


      postflop



      CO&BTN were fishy, that's why I opened KJo from UTG.
      Bet turn?
      As played, what do you think about raising river? Would calling be better? I thought that this sizing will be more often thin value (A:sX/QQ f.e.) which I dont beat, than bluff. With a raise I can rep Tx hands mainly, which didnt bluff turn.

      Hey D,

      I think Ax is a decent part of his range but I wouldn't discount a hand like QJ for example. I think your option of raising is not good because you want to make your opponent fold Ax after he bets small. Usually he would snap off your bet if he has top pair, 3bet if he has trips or straight, maybe fold Jx which is a split. I think given the odds and the busted flushdraw without A :spade: you can also consider calling. I think raising just puts in more money quite badly.

      Do you think it's an easy snapcall for him with a hand like A:s9?

      Yes. First of all, he only bets Ax if he thinks he has the best hand. Next, he will more often than not think his small bet induces a raise. Finally, you don't rep any valid value raise so most of the time he calls regardless of his level.
