      22/15 3bet: 4.1 AF: 1 solid reg

      We are deep, i can call for set value. I hit my set, the flop is pretty dry, i cant really raise i think, i fold out too much hands.
      On the turn he checks, looks like he doesnt like the king, so i bet only halfpot, he calls. The flush hits, and he checks the river.
      At this point, he can have QQ-JJ, it makes sense (QQ beats me now), but the other hands...
      AK, KK, TT.AA: he would c/r the turn i think, or simply bet
      AQs: probably bet the river

      Is there any value in betting here? An AK or AA may call me, but they are pretty unlikely based on his turn play...

      Hello Absolutism,

      Flop: I guess depends a lot on the opponent, as you said solid reg then likely Calling the flop is better.
      Turn: Although I would still bet it bigger on turn like $3,50 or something similar.
      River: That's true that he will anyways have hard time Calling you with a lot worse here, like with JJ or whatsoever. But while I guess we can still threw a small bet like $3-4 and maybe even get value from some AK/AA or maybe even 2pair(KQs which tried to squeeze) type of hand, never know. Although Checking back either ain't wrong and take a look at his hand and take a note about preflop play.

      Best regards.
