6max - KJo defend, boat otr.

NikosNikos Red Chipper Posts: 117
First off, i suppose KJo is a standard defending hand? Does anyone 3b this pre? V is a one of the better players around, i'm not sure i could get more value by raising somewhere. On hindsight, i might have preferred a fishy min-raise otr. Thoughts please?

MP: 100.5 BB (VPIP: 12.50, PFR: 6.62, 3Bet Preflop: 2.50, Hands: 140)
CO: 108 BB (VPIP: 26.44, PFR: 20.87, 3Bet Preflop: 4.87, Hands: 668)
BTN: 278.5 BB (VPIP: 16.76, PFR: 12.40, 3Bet Preflop: 5.26, Hands: 538)
SB: 84 BB (VPIP: 46.15, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 13)
Hero (BB): 129 BB
UTG: 41.5 BB (VPIP: 20.77, PFR: 13.85, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 134)

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J :diamond K :club

fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 2 BB

Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) K :heart K :spade A :spade
Hero checks, CO bets 4 BB, Hero calls 4 BB

Turn: (14.5 BB, 2 players) 8 :spade
Hero checks, CO bets 8.5 BB, Hero calls 8.5 BB

River: (31.5 BB, 2 players) J :club
Hero checks, CO bets 22.5 BB, Hero raises to 113.5 BB and is all-in, fold

Hero wins 74 BB

    Looks fine to me. I wouldn't min raise river but I'm definitely raising. You might want to consider raising flop with the flush draw out there. If he has AA or AK so be it. Maybe a small raise to like 50ish bb if you think he will fold everything but a full house for an all in. I think a lot of flushes make a crying call here for a small raise.

    KJ is ok to defend with vs CO open. Its not great. As for 3 betting depends on his fold to 3bet %. Also even its high fold to 3bet i would prefer a more polarized range.

    Maybe something like QQ+ AK+ and some low scs or low pp.

    Well played. Totally correct line vs solid aggressive type.

    Thanks both!

    @Austin, on your note on widening the 3b range i was kind of surprised you left out Axs (A2-A5s). These are typically the first hands I include to widen and polarize my 3b range which makes sense to me mainly due to the A blocker. Then add SCs and PPs if i need more bluff combos. Would you object?
