      SB: $57.14 (114.3 bb)
      BB: $32.69 (65.4 bb)
      UTG: $64.76 (129.5 bb)
      MP: $53.67 (107.3 bb)
      CO: $101.15 (202.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $61.81 (123.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with :Ad: :Tc:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB raises to $4, BB folds, Hero raises to $8.75, SB calls $4.75

      Flop: ($18) :Td: :9d: :4h: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.75, SB calls $5.75

      Turn: ($29.50) :8d: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($29.50) :7h: (2 players)
      SB bets $15.75, Hero folds


      Preflop: Standard open. SB plays 26/24 in 43 hands and 3bets 12,5 vs Hero. He looks aggressive so far, so I decided to 4bet bluff.

      Flop: I hit TPTK + BDFD so made a standard 1/3 bet for value. This board also hits his range and he could have sets, but also QQ-JJ. Anyway, I think betting is better than checking back.

      Turn: I hit nut FD, but don't expect calls from worse hands so decided to take a free river. Here I'm not sure should I cbet, but if I do, it would be weird to face a raise.

      River: I think I beat nothing there, so I folded.

      Not sure if I would bet that small on the flop. Especially on a wet board like this I would bet at least half pot for value and protection. The rest of the hand seems standard when all draws arrived on the river.

      Cheers,

      He shouldn't have many draws there, except some gutshots with KQs. QJ is probably folding pre and I block A-high flushdraws. It looks more like QQ-JJ to me.

      It would be tough if he shoves. I think we would be against flushes and QJ there almost always. In general, I don't see much worse hands calling the turn bet.

      I like it as played for reasons u stated. I was thinking about betting Ott, bit I would say checking back is fine.

      Eh I hate having this hand in 4bet range
      Plays so crappy when we get called and people seem to hate folding :D
      Also I'd definitely 4bet bigger vs the small blind, especially when you include hands like these - you have a hand that plays crappy when you get called and you give him a price where he can flat close to everything and be right especially if he 3bets linear range that everyone including my grandma does these days.

      Doing this vs BB with this hand and sizing still sounds okay

      Postflop I think I'd check my AK etc. hands just bet with Ad, probably give up suited kings and AXs I 4bet with without the FD although cbet small with everything should be okay too. So yeah this seems fine as played

      I'd personally just check back flop wanting to call down a lot of runouts
