      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 77.6 BB (VPIP: 32.05, PFR: 2.56, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 78)
      UTG: 67.5 BB (VPIP: 56.10, PFR: 34.15, 3Bet Preflop: 18.75, Hands: 41)

      MP: 100 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 22.41, 3Bet Preflop: 7.21, Hands: 603)
      CO: 40 BB (VPIP: 20.53, PFR: 16.83, 3Bet Preflop: 8.70, Hands: 965)
      BTN: 109.7 BB (VPIP: 21.97, PFR: 19.72, 3Bet Preflop: 11.68, Hands: 719)
      Hero (SB): 132.3 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: T:spade:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) 2:heart: 4:diamond: 4:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG bets 5.5 BB, Hero calls 5.5 BB

      Turn: (18 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, UTG bets 19 BB, Hero calls 19 BB

      River: (56 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG bets 40 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 40 BB

      this hand is very interesting...
      I played it vs his hole range.
      Preflop: ATs crushes his range so call.
      Flop: is great for AT still against his range and cbet habit i'm ahead.
      Turn: probably very safe card here I made a decision and against his sick range, cbetting habit probably i'm steal in good situation. 4 on the turn made decision easier. Probably on different card I would be more inclined to fold.
      River: just call down.

      Is it ok to play hands like this or this is gambling mode and i should avoid it?
      my assumption was almost correct besides of river because he holds T6

      Hi UnknownJoseph,

      Preflop: It's a small sample so I wouldn't say it crushes his range. You should be ahead but are OOP and have no initiative.

      Given he opened UTG and is betting rather large, without reads I wouldn't spew money on light bluffcatches like this. Plenty of pairs and better Ax in his range.

      And to answer your question, given the lack of info, and our hand, it is definitely very gambly.
