Question

Aggressive online six-max game. Folded to you on the button you raise to $7. The tight-aggressive player in the big blind protects. Heads-up flop of 9 6 3. Your opponent checks; you bet $10. He flat-calls. Turn 3. He quickly checks. You fire $19. He calls and then instantly checks 4 river.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet $55

Checking would be the safest route but that would be like leaving money on the table. Your opponent's hand looks a lot like 77-88 or a T-9o type of hand. Your range, however, looks fairly bluffy. You could be three-barreling any one of the missed draws as well as the occasional overcards. This is an excellent spot for a thin value bet.
