      PokerStars - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 117.38 BB
      SB: 90.16 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 25.00, 3Bet Preflop: 50.00, Hands: 4)
      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 22.69, PFR: 18.67, 3Bet Preflop: 6.20, Hands: 583)
      UTG: 75.8 BB (VPIP: 37.14, PFR: 27.14, 3Bet Preflop: 14.29, Hands: 76)
      MP: 42.26 BB (VPIP: 22.39, PFR: 22.39, 3Bet Preflop: 6.90, Hands: 72)
      CO: 120.48 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 25.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 12)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, CO raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 7.5 BB, SB calls 7 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (18 BB, 2 players) 6:spade: A:diamond: 4:diamond:
      SB bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB

      Turn: (20 BB, 2 players) J:club:
      SB bets 8.5 BB, Hero calls 8.5 BB

      River: (37 BB, 2 players) A:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 12 BB, SB raises to 39.5 BB, Hero calls 27.5 BB

      SB shows 2:heart: 2:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Twos) (Pre 52%, Flop 10%, Turn 5%)
      Hero shows A:spade: T:club: (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 48%, Flop 90%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins 111 BB



      CO folds 4/4 to 3b. Is it better to call preflop to let the SB join?
      I saw him playing very aggro, spewing.


      Flop: I usually raise vs fish, but since he is aggro, I rather let him spew, if he would bet so small on turn I would raise.

      Hey M,

      Preflop is fine IP for sure to 3bet. When SB cold calls it gets a bit interesting.

      I would raise flop here but if you think a call makes him spew on turns, then :f_thumbsup: .

      On the turn he does bet bigger so overall it seems like your plan works. On the river you have to make the assumption he will continue betting hands like JJ and AQ so bet/calling is fine. Even if he c/r JJ, AQ as well, he probably has them so rarely you can consider a call. Nh, wp! Your bet size could be a bit smaller imo, I would go to about 9 there, just to induce more calls/raises since he has air or medium hand imo. That's also the reason you call raise: once he checks, he is almost never going to have top of his range for this board.
