      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: 125.83 BB
      BTN: 196.23 BB
      SB: 143.83 BB
      BB: 73.65 BB
      Hero (UTG): 164.33 BB
      MP: 45.4 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: A:diamond:

      Hero raises to 3.5 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 3.5 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (8.5 BB, 2 players) T:heart: T:spade: 3:spade:
      Hero bets 4.25 BB, BTN calls 4.25 BB

      Turn: (17 BB, 2 players) A:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 8.5 BB, Hero raises to 25.5 BB, BTN calls 17 BB

      River: (68 BB, 2 players) 2:diamond:


      BU is a weak player, 27/16 over 150h, cold calls 20%, 3bet 3%

      Turn: Decided to x/r turn as hes gonna bet himself his Tx, Ax or flush and I am not getting much value from smaller pairs anyway.
      Also I want to pump as much money in the pot as possible with the nuts.

      River: What part of his range should I target with my betsizing, and how much would you bet ?

      Hey D,

      I'd start off by betting more like 5.50 or 6bb on the flop.

      Then your c/r on the turn can be about 45bb and all of a sudden you have a pot size shove on the river or super close to it.

      If you just bet 6bb on the flop, turn pot is about 20bb, he bets like 12-15bb, you make a solid raise and there you have it. As played, I would bet relatively big, you already look really polarised, his range should be quite inelastic. Not inelastic enough to ship it though, just too much of an overbet.probably 40-50bb is the sizing to go with.
