      Hi freespirit47!

      Flatting KQs preflop is viable option as you dominate many hands in the CO opening range.

      As played I would play passively. We have TPGK here, but that is not powerhouse.

      Let him bet his worse hands QJ, QT, draws.

      By raising turn you (especially that big) you are isolating yourself to his top range (AQ, 86, sets, ...) and he is folding all the hands you would like to see him betting for you (QJ, QT, draws).

      If he checks turn you can bet most of the save rivers, or as well bet save rivers when he bets flop/turn himself to extract thin value from his TP type hands.

      As played river: There is no option not to get it in, I would bet smaller here to get called by AQ.

      P.S: Hodne stesti a skillu u stolu ;) (GL at tables)

      thanks funktor,

      yeah i guess i quite overplayed it, but it was a total calling station, so i was trying to get the most out of it, preparing river pot sized bet for the river - with the way he played he'd call the turn raise with any Q and any draw, the river was a perfect card for me, shame he had the set this time

      P.s.: dakujem, napodobne :)
