vs a reg: 24/21/3,5 AF 939 hands 5.6 3bet 5.1 from the bb
River Agg 42%(36)

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://poker-tools.flopturnriver.com/Hand-Converter.php

Button ($17.72)
Hero (SB) ($49.90)
BB ($25)
UTG ($25)
MP ($16.82)
CO ($22.20)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K, Q
4 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, BB calls $0.37

Flop: ($1.24) 10, K, 3 (2 players)
Hero bets $0.80, BB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.70

Turn: ($6.24) 5 (2 players)
Hero checks, BB bets $4.25, Hero calls $4.25

River: ($14.74) 7 (2 players)
Hero checks, BB bets $11.75, Hero...

So on the flop i think im never folding, im on the top of my range, also i think he would 3bet AK, KK, and probably TT, so i think im only behind 33 and KT. So the plan was to call turn and i expected him to check river back if most draws missed. Most draws missed on river except for the BDFD, but he didn't gave up,as i expect must of the times on this stakes, but i saw his river AFq, was kind of high. So can the high AFq and being sb vs bb can justify a call?

Hey Carlos

I would be quite happy to call here. I think we are at the top of our range against a villain who we can be expecting to be bluffing reasonably often here. Often enough to merit a call at least. Moreover his line doesn't make sense for that many value hands as you pointed out and we have a nice blocker to backdoor hearts, even though he isn't really raising KXhh that much on the flop.

I think if we see value here it will be A9hh type hands and we'll see that fairly often, but we'll see enough J9/QJ XYdd to justify a river call.
