      SB ($9.44)
      Hero ($5)
      UTG ($2.43)
      UTG+1 ($2)
      CO ($2)
      BTN ($5) (vpip:12, pfr:11, af:1.5, hands:106)

      Dealt to Hero A:club: J:club:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.15, fold, Hero raises to $0.45, BTN calls $0.30

      FLOP ($0.92) 5:club: 5:heart: A:spade:

      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      TURN ($2.12) 5:club: 5:heart: A:spade: 4:heart:

      Hero bets $1.35, BTN calls $1.35

      RIVER ($4.82) 5:club: 5:heart: A:spade: 4:heart: 3:spade:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      BTN shows A:diamond: Q:heart: (Pre 70%, Flop 71.7%, Turn 85.2%) Hero shows A:club: J:club: (Pre 30%, Flop 28.3%, Turn 14.8%) BTN wins $4.62

      First of all this is FR, just 6 people were dealt.
      Preflop I usually re-raise with stuff like AJ if button open raises. In this occasion villain is tighter than usual, so I don't know if I overplayed a little here.
      When he calls on the flop, I think he has an Ace, because he seems to be a solid player. Maybe he has QQ-JJ and doesn't want to fold here. I don't think he is calling with worse.
      So I guess the question is how small an Ace would he have called my re-raise with preflop. AT+?
      So how to play the turn/river? I have top pair but I am at most even, if not behind...

      Hi datalogg,

      Preflop: Why do we 3-bet here? Bluff or value? If it's value it's definitely too loose.

      Postflop: As played I would ck/fold the turn versus someone like him and if he checks back we have a thin valuebet on the river.
