      MP+1: 45.28 BB (VPIP: 7.25, PFR: 5.80, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 138)

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has K:club: K:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, Hero raises to 13 BB, fold, CO calls 10 BB, BTN calls 10 BB

      Flop: (40 BB, 3 players) 3:club: T:heart: A:heart:
      Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Besides being OOP, I thought that one of the two was likely to hold an ace. Also, if I bet here around 25 BB and someone calls or raises, the pot will be 90BB and I'll have 70BB left, which gives me good odds to call a raise even in future streets. However, I think villains won't raise with worse than my hand, so I decided to play check / fold.

      Turn: (40 BB, 3 players) 4:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets 23 BB, fold, fold

      CO wins 38.2 BB
