      MP3 wins with double paire, jacks and sevens (Kc Jc)

      The guy likes to float me with overcards since I Cbet too much. I then valuebet flop + turn.
      With two overcards in his floating zone and a possible FD in that could have motivated him to float the turn as well, I don't see anymore value on the river, and don't see him fold a Q or J he did float to draw to a simple raise, and decide to check/fold the river. I simply though that he may fear a check/raise from a 7 (I check/raised one of his floats earlier with a yummy hand)

      Is my line correct? Throwing money out of the window?

      If he is going to c/c flop and turn with K high then it is mandatory valuebet on the turn with 55. River is easy check behind, since he would not fold better hand and it is hard expect him to call you down with AK
