      PF i am 3betting as i've been quite tight recently, so my image is good :)
      Flop is nice, easy cbet.
      Turn - should i bet here? The turncard is quite awful, a nine has hit. I think i cannot bet for value here, as i don't see many worse hands that could call me (maybe JT-KT). I don't think i have to protect here as well. FD is very unlikely and majority of straightdraws has already hit. There are ofc some guthots, but the only hand i have to protect against is 45 i think, or? I decided to check/fold, but he bet very small amount, so i finally decided to check/raise to represent straight and get hands like 2 pairs to fold.

      Thanks for your ideas ;)

      I would never 3bet with this hand pre. Difficult hand to play OOP.

      Bet more on the flop. It is very drawy, so I would bet like 65-70c. I would check/fold the turn since so many draws completed. You just put yourself into a difficult position since you 3bet pre and built the pot. Therefore you had to make a big c-bet and you have already commited 1/5 of your stack with a hand like this.

      standard 3-bet against loose Bu open
      He would never b/f turn with two pair hands, but his range is definitely wider than 9x or two pair on the turn, so I think if you´re not c/c turn and c/f river you can also c/rai turn
