      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3 4
      SB raises to $1, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2) K 3 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB bets $3.50, Hero raises to $10.50, SB calls $7

      River: ($26) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB checks



      Pre fold? Or 3bet? I think he steals 70%+ here, and folded to 3bets IP 60% so far.

      On the flop I called, cause I have a pair plus backdoors, and this is HU.
      If he bets turn, I planned to chR every , to make him fold occasional midpairs, or draws+overs with good equity. Should I just ch/call turn again?
      As played, river? I beat all X:hX/X:dX with no pairs, and I dont think he would fold any Kx. Should I fire here?

      Preflop: Both 3-betting and flatting are fine. But I'll probably call this by default

      Flop: Standard c/c. I would c/r this on a more draw heavy texture like T:h9:h3 if I expect to get barreled a lot

      Turn: I would still call here - It's always a good idea to c/c with pair+draw type of holdings so that your range is not completely imbalanced. Note that backdoored flush cards tend to favour the preflop raiser more than the preflop caller and aggressive players know this and will often try to rep the flush.

      River: As played, if you think villain doesn't know how to value bet thinly, you have an easy c/c here to bluff catch vs busted draws.
