      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:spade: , A:heart:

      Hero bets $1.13, CO raises to $3.85 (All-In), Hero calls $2.72 (All-In)

      Total pot: $10.07 | Rake: $0.49

      Hero had K:spade: , A:heart: (straight, Ace high).
      CO had Q:heart: , A:spade: (full house, Queens over Aces).
      Outcome: CO won $9.58

      i guess the best line here is to c/f flop? or b/f ? and then c/f or c/c turn? and what about the river? i am really confused about this hand, i mean it is obvious that i call for a split pot on the river, so c/c river, because i don't get any value anyway? or even c/f?

      Hello abc794,

      Depends really what kind of player he is? I don't really see what cards we beat on river. I mean we might only get a split there and that's all. But everything like TT/QJ/JJ/AQ completed and beat us. So therefore the river Call is mostly only for a split, don't think that he would do that with trips here anyways. So while it's still more than 50% of our stack to Call I'd make a hero-fold here.

      Turn: About the play on turn I'd say it might be even better idea to go for a Check/Call since he wont pay you with a lot worse hands here anyways. But of course this again depends what kind of opponent he is. But I don't even mind if he Checks behind here, we still get value on river from worse.

      As played
      River: Kinda cruel and as you went for value on turn then I'd be really inclined to Block-bet/Fold it, maybe even a bit less ~$1. Since I don't really see him shoving with a lot worse hands. At the best it's a split. No point to Check/Call it either since he wont bluff here and what if he does bet a huge amount? We might even have to Check/Fold then.

      Best regards.
