      Puh postflop it is ok, but... but... why calling Pre with A7 and then be dominated in a 3bet pot? If you hit the ace, will you ever fold? If not, you are up vs better aces most of the time. If yes, you just fold and loose, too.

      Oh and welcome to the BR challenge,too!

      What range do you think he will B/C river?
      I would have preferred to squeeze pre myself. but as played, calling suited A on BTN is ok vs squeeze? squeezer is going to play very honest being oop in 3bet pot imo. yes of course i fold sometimes when i hit. It depends on board and action though

      I think he will B/C all overpairs, as this looks too suspicious to get raised here. Everybody loves to look up opponents and see if they are bluffing in such a spot. ...But they don't!

      I doubt CO has JJ+ in his range given the preflop action. imo, he has all boats, some 2p, some TP hands along with busted BDFD. His river sizing was really strange, effective stack was 1/2p and he bets 1/4p ?(

      Pretty thin bet on the river. I like my sizing. They never fold any pair that calls the Turn raise. Surprised UTG has AK here, they normally donk bet massive. Or rip it in pre.
