      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $51.70
      BU:
      $47.25
      SB (Hero):
      $51.85
      BB:
      $115.20


      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, A.
      CO folds, BU raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.5) 5, J, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($9.5) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $9.00, Hero raises to $18.25, BU raises to $42.75, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $27.75.

      Villain is 21/14 with 32 steal, aggression factor 1.5 after only 64 hands. a preflop 3bet comes into consideration. I hit a piece of the flop so I think my call is probably okay, though maybe I should be raising the flop (more cheaply) for information. On the turn villain bets pot. I am undecided between: folding, calling here and having a difficult decision on the River, or putting in a small raise for information, which I opted for. I have a feeling I played this badly overall - please let me know?

      I would 3-bet pf with AJ
      I think flop is ok. Don´t really like c/r turn
      If he pots it he is either bluffing or has hand that he is not folding to c/r, so I don´t like your turn play
      I think calldown is reasonable or if you´re not sure then fold is also ok
