      Only stats. No reads.

      $0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players

      UTG+1: 187 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 12)
      Hero (MP): 181.5 BB
      MP+1: 61.5 BB (VPIP: 32.35, PFR: 5.88, 3Bet Preflop: 6.25, Hands: 68)
      CO: 100 BB (VPIP: 25.43, PFR: 11.67, 3Bet Preflop: 3.28, Hands: 818)
      BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 16.16, PFR: 9.90, 3Bet Preflop: 3.96, Hands: 1,153)
      SB: 100 BB (VPIP: 13.09, PFR: 9.15, 3Bet Preflop: 3.15, Hands: 816)
      BB: 84 BB (VPIP: 22.12, PFR: 0.96, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 105)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:heart: Q:heart:
      Trying to isolate the limper with a reasonable hand to play IP in HU and a hand with postflop potential in case of a multiway pot.

      fold, UTG+1 calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 5 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls 4 BB, fold

      Flop: (11.5 BB, 2 players) K:diamond: 4:spade: T:heart:
      Here comes the hardest part of the hand to me: deciding between a c-bet or a check/behind.
      Based on the small sample size (VPIP/PFR), I categorized the villain as a nit and thought a cbet, on that board, would make more sense than trying to improve OTT.
      After the check/raise, I couldn't see any point on continue...

      BB checks, Hero bets 7.5 BB, BB raises to 34 BB, fold

      BB wins 25 BB

      WP, honestly don’t mind the size pre. Can probably bet this board quite often so I can see sizing down a blind or two. You have better range here so a small bet makes sense. You have KK, 1010, K10, AK, AA. He has 1010 and K10s maybe. This allows you to bet some weak stuff and your OESD. Much of your continuing range does not mind a raise here (so the smaller bet can work out well in this stiuation when they ready you as weak and raise you) and you get a cheaper price on your bluffs.
