      BTN: $10.97 (219.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5 (100 bb)
      BB: $5.03 (100.6 bb)
      UTG: $10.54 (210.8 bb)
      MP: $7.98 (159.6 bb)
      CO: $4 (80 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q T
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.55, BB folds, BTN calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15) K 7 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.65, BTN raises to $1.30, Hero folds

      Villain is 27/20 over 16 hands.

      I decided to 3bet pre to try and take the pot down. This is definitely a 3bet bluff. However, would it be better to flat here and keep his range wide? I think I would have called QJo here instead of 3betting, but QTo just feels to weak to play out of position without initiative so I decided to turn it into a bluff.

      As played, is it good to cbet this type of board? I think most people will play pretty straightforward on this board, meaning they will fold pretty often. However, this is a 3bet pot and he is in position so I'm not quite sure.

      Hey Tino,

      I think preflop 3bet is cool, postflop though I would usually not cbet this board with complete air. The problem is your equity is so low you will be one and done in a spot where your opponent doesn't fold any pair or any heart.
