      BTN: 104.5 BB (VPIP: 22.17, PFR: 17.24, 3Bet Preflop: 4.94, Hands: 212)
      SB: 152 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 17.39, 3Bet Preflop: 10.26, Hands: 92)
      BB: 100 BB
      Hero (UTG): 589 BB
      MP: 108 BB
      CO: 100 BB (VPIP: 15.82, PFR: 12.46, 3Bet Preflop: 4.31, Hands: 304)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 5:club: A:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) T:heart: 4:club: A:heart:
      Hero bets 3 BB, MP raises to 10 BB, Hero calls 7 BB

      Turn: (27.5 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP bets 17.5 BB, fold

      I am wondering if this plays better as a check-call OTF.
      MP wins 26.5 BB

      I think A5s is an kinda loose open UTG, but anyway. On this board I would not check-call. Bet-call is fine IMO. Without any reads on villain, I´d put him TT, 44, AT, A4 and FDs. And any combo draws like KQhh, QJhh, etc. I don´t think he´d raise any AK or AQ.

      I would´ve called turn and reevaluate river. I´d check and hope he´s checking behind. If he shoves you´re probably dead...
