      Hero bets $6.00, BU calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($22.00) 9 (2 players)
      Hero raises to $15.2(All-In), BU calls $14.92.

      River: ($52.12) T (2 players)

      Final Pot: $52.12.


      Preflop, BU has an ATS of 31% (VPIP/PFR - 16/6) and I have position on the SB cold-caller, so I 3-bet hoping to take the pot right away. BU calls, however, with position on me and I hit TPTK on the flop. I don't really know his range here, as I don't know how loose his calls against resteals are. Being OOP, I have to bet it, anyway. Villain just calls. I now put him on JJ+ and AT+, calling the conti-bet to see what I do on the turn. If I check/fold the turn, I give up against some worse hands and I have to go all-in with the pot-size.

      Is there any way to get out of this hand after the preflop action? On the flop, I have to bet against JJ, QQ, KK or even more pairs. On the turn, I give up to worse hands if I check/fold, but can I still put him on any worse hand here?
