      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      BB ($11.92)
      UTG ($25.29)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($10.70)
      MP1 ($25.66)
      MP2 ($26.86)
      MP3 ($27.27)
      CO ($25)
      Button ($26.28)
      SB ($41.38)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with 8, 8
      1 fold, Hero bets $1, 3 folds, CO calls $1, 3 folds

      Flop: ($2.35) K, Q, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($2.35) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, 1 fold

      Total pot: $2.35 | Rake: $0.11


      villain is 10/7 over 1.2k hands

      I am looking at spots to reduce my flop cbets as they are too high and I think that is an obvious one.

      I think in position with anything decent villain would have tried to take the pot there as there is a lot of possible draws.

      Is check flop bet turn a possible line here. I think this line can also rotray strong hands (check the flop in the hope of check/raise). Is the bet size ok? and of course I would fold to any resistance there.

      the way I played it:

      What would you do if he calls your Turnbet? What is his range?

      Looking forward to your reply
      Best regards,

      well that's a bit broad isn't ? If you want to handread one cannot really say ''well his range compromises of any K,Q,J or T etc.''

      So if handreading with concrete ranges isn't your strong thing, I would suggest improving it by reading articles, learning it actively with equilator etc. This also can solve your barrel problem as you can quickly see a weak range that will call the Flop but 95% of the times fold on a Turnbarrel

      You also didn't answered my question about what you would do on the River.

      Sorry i did not look back properly at OP, with 10/7 I would put him on either small or medium PP, or ATs+, AQo+, and possibly slow playing preflop QQ+
      as a calling range

      And I can see him folding to a bet on turn any PP under TT except 77 and holding on to anything else.

      If he called it, I would have played it c/f.

      I disagree that his range is including 100% of the timesATs+,AQo+. Do you see why if I told you about the concept of protecting one's hand ?

      So what do we do most of the times on the River ?

      I'd bet unless a J or T pops up... because that is why I imagine he would have called and some call with a set even with 4 cards to a straight on the board.
