      SB: $7.57 (151.4 bb)
      BB: $6.53 (130.6 bb)
      UTG: $12.28 (245.6 bb) (vpip 38% pfr 26% af 1.7 hands 87)
      MP: $5.69 (113.8 bb)
      Hero (CO): $8.52 (170.4 bb)
      BTN: $28.74 (574.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with :Jd: :Jh:
      UTG raises to $0.15, MP folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.07) :2h: :4s: :7d: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.71, UTG raises to $1.42, Hero calls $0.71

      Turn: ($3.91) :9c: (2 players)
      UTG bets $2.79, Hero calls $2.79

      River: ($9.49) :5c: (2 players)
      UTG bets $7.57, Hero calls $3.81 and is all-in

      $17.11 pot ($0.85 rake)
      Final Board: :2h: :4s: :7d: :9c: :5c:
      UTG showed :3c: :3s: and lost (-$8.52 net)
      Hero showed :Jd: :Jh: and won $16.26 ($7.74 net)

      This hand had me thinking was this a profitable call? I had already decided that once i called the turn if no over cards came i was always calling river,
      Notes I had on Villain were, triple barrels when turns TPmk on low board, 4b AKo and 5b jams AKs (80bbs eff) these were caddy notes?
      Any input would be most appreciated...

      Why do you bet so big OTF? It is a 3bet pot already, board is very dry for both of your ranges...
      Bet smaller definitely.
      I don't see microstakes players traping with premiums often, so I don't expected to be beaten on that flop. Therefore, I'd probably 3 bet/call that flop check-raise, using my positional advantage to put even more pressure. It is an excellent board to do it with. At least call it, folding is completely out of the question.
      UTG line is consistent at least, but he's representing so few value combos that I'd raise-shove that turn as played. You'll be commited for the river by calling and you maximize your equity while you have it.
      You cannot, I repeat not, fold that river on that board after calling turn. He's so capped.

      Yeah it was a 3b pot. I just felt with the info i had on him it had to be mostly a bluff cause it was a really dry board, since this hand i have seen the same player commit some reckless bluffs lol, cheers for the reply mate..
