      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (CO): 285 BB
      BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 13.51, PFR: 8.11, 3Bet Preflop: 8.57, Hands: 76)
      SB: 142.2 BB (VPIP: 25.26, PFR: 21.05, 3Bet Preflop: 4.69, Hands: 201)
      BB: 127.2 BB (VPIP: 19.23, PFR: 14.10, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 81)
      UTG: 104.2 BB (VPIP: 35.92, PFR: 29.13, 3Bet Preflop: 13.89, Hands: 105)
      MP: 115.4 BB (VPIP: 29.41, PFR: 16.18, 3Bet Preflop: 9.09, Hands: 69)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 9:diamond: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 2.6 BB, fold, fold, BB raises to 8.2 BB, Hero calls 5.6 BB

      I decided to call the 3bet. I was IP with a speculative hand. Now I'm thinking that was a mistake. He wouldn't raise that much with any card. That was hardly a bluff, he must have been holding the top of his range.

      Flop: (16.8 BB, 2 players) A:spade: Q:club: 9:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 11.2 BB, BB calls 11.2 BB

      Floped 2 pair, and bet 2/3 of the pot.

      Turn: (39.2 BB, 2 players) K:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 26 BB, BB raises to 52 BB, Hero calls 26 BB

      I raised thinking K was a good scare card. He checked-raised me, I was hoping he was holding a smaller 2pair so i called...

      River: (143.2 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 95.4 BB, BB calls 55.8 BB and is all-in

      And here I shoved... Should I have just checked back?

      Hero shows 9:diamond: A:diamond: (Two Pair, Aces and Nines)
      (Pre 31%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
      BB shows Q:spade: Q:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Queens)
      (Pre 69%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
      BB wins 242.2 BB

      Fold this PF, would avoid this post-flop complication. River I think it will depend on the villain, with no info having to check back because I do not believe that with AJ or AT the villain would pay, but if you have his note of callinstation bet would be good.

      i think folding turn is the right move here. When you think about this you beat nothing but a spew. This Nitty guy never has Q9/K9 here which are the only "value" hands you beat. The way he played it, it screams of KK and i think his range is merely AA,AK,KK,AQ,QQ.

      Fold preflop,no need to defend that wide. Viliain represent slowpaly AA or KK OTT, no 3bet on 81hand.OTR is check back.
