      SB: $103.70 (414.8 bb)
      BB: $29.24 (117 bb)
      UTG: $51.84 (207.4 bb)
      MP: $26.57 (106.3 bb)
      CO: $47.83 (191.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $105.11 (420.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 7
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2, 2 folds, CO calls $1.25

      Flop: ($4.35) A T 7 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.89, CO calls $2.89

      Turn: ($10.13) T (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($10.13) K (2 players)
      CO bets $9.58, Hero folds

      $10.13 pot ($0.55 rake)
      Final Board: A T 7 T K
      CO mucked and won $9.58 ($4.69 net)
      Hero mucked A 7 and lost (-$4.89 net)

      CO: 139 hands

      Fold to 3b: 67% (low sample)
      Fold to CB: 60% (low sample)

      PRF: Generally I'd toss the hand but something made spark for a 3b, xyr unusual RFI stat from CO. Here is the line up from UTG to SB RFI:
      8/7/40/20/38. That huge 40% CO RFI made me go into 3b w A blocker.
      Flop: Lucky! Flopped 2pair with my bluff and looking forward to extract from AK/AQ/AJ and some worse.
      Turn: Boom! 2P vanishes and I'm left with a bad kicker against someone who likes to fold a lot on flop, and therefore I'm putting xem mostly on AJ+, KTs, QTs, JTs, TT, 77, QQ. I just decide to give up.
      River: As planned.

      My mistake in my opinion was preflop, as we were deep, therefore xe's likely to call me much lighter than usual.

      What are your thoughts?
      What if xe bets between 1/3 and 1/2 of the pot on river?
      Do we call to split or it's a loss?

      Looks completely fine, well played.

      I don't think your preflop sample is big enough to draw any conclusions from though. No player in the universe opens 7% in MP and 40% in CO :D . 3betting Axo deep IP is still ok.
