      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $22.50
      BB:
      $21.35
      MP2:
      $21.55
      MP3:
      $38.85
      CO:
      $58.00
      BU:
      $0.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6, 6.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.5) 4, 2, 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $5.00, Hero calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($12.5) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $8.00, Hero raises to $16.25, BB calls $7.10.

      River: ($43.85) K (2 players)


      Final Pot: $43.85.

      villain is 22/9 after 97 hands, aggression factor 1.5., pf 3bet 7.
      Any thoughts about the play here? I felt that a lot of the time I am up against Ax here but that a pocket pair will normally 3bet pf. But against an over card fd I am not favourite on the flop. Any reason not to go broke when a safe turn card hits?
      Thanks

      I think it is really optimistic to think that you stack off on turn and are ahead of the somewhat passive villain. Turn 4 is really killing you - even if he raised with top pair of 4s, he now is way ahead and I think mostly he will have trips, fullhouse or floped straight here, sometimes maybe he has something like 5:dx and maybe if you are lucky then A:dx

      hi armo,
      I think A :diamond: K :diamond: normally 3bets preflop, doesn't it? Villain is not aggressive, that's true, but I don't think 1.5 is quite 'passive'.

      I disagree that the turn card is bad for me. I would say it is pretty unlikely that he has a 4 here. (Not from his play - just probabilistically). I also doubt he would bet this much with trips in this spot.

      I think 22/9 usually is not raising that flop without decent equity or overpairs
      I think your play is fine, since he have there sometimes draws, although a lot of times I´d expect to see either 88+ or two pair/set/straight
