      BTN: $12.41 (248.2 bb)
      SB: $12.50 (250 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.09 (101.8 bb)
      MP: $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $18.84 (376.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J J
      MP raises to $0.14, CO folds, BTN calls $0.14, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.60, MP folds, BTN calls $0.46

      Flop: ($1.36) K T 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN raises to $1.80, Hero folds

      $2.56 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: K T 2
      BTN mucked and won $2.45 ($1.25 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$1.20 net)

      Opp is 25/19; 2,3 AF, decent sample

      His PFR by position wasn't ideally progressive, which made me believe he was not exactly positionally aware, his UTG PFR was 18.

      I was ahead of his range, so I 3bet for value. Calling would be a mistake I think.

      Flop comes ugly, not much to do here besides bet/fold? C/c and c/f too weak? C/r would be too spewy.

      Would my line be different if he was just a competent, positionally aware TAG?

      I don't think betting is a good option. You can either c/c or c/f. The weaker the player, the more I prefer check/calling once and folding. Weak players tend to stab once and give up, making c/c the ideal line. Aggro villains will often fire multiple barrels and put you in tough spots.
