      He often calls a K to our minR and he may also shove weaker hands like bluffs.

      But should I really play for a whole stack here? That's one of the big problems in my game. Sometimes I have no idea If I should control the pot or not.

      In this hand, If I minreraise him and instead of pushing he just calls. How should I play the turn?

      On this hand I also thought he could be holding a K or smaller PP and decided to play more passively, I'm posting the entire hand, this is how I played it.

      Why? Wouldn't I be making it easier for small PP to fold their hands?

      What do you mean?

      And about pot control... why should I disregard it in this hand?

      Why?

      gets called by a K
      if he has a Flushdraw he might fold it
      or call it to a wrong prize

      Wouldn't I be making it easier for small PP to fold their hands?

      Smaller pairs?
      Dont think he will 3 barrel

      What do you mean?

      That i am not sure if you c/r or b/c the turn

      And about pot control... why should I disregard it in this hand?

      Because you can get value from weaker hands
      (draw + king)

      I still don't understand how you get a free river by betting the flop.

      Assume you have a pocket pair, say 55. With such a holding you typically check behind the river, hence, we get a free river.

      Would the line hero takes change if villain would've raised a bit more like 3x to $12?

      I can't check behind. I'm OOP.

      This was written from the perspective of villain.
