      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU = ($11.84)
      SB = ($10.65)
      BB = ($11.16)
      MP2 = ($10.00)
      MP3 (Hero) = ($15.78)
      CO = ($9.08)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:diamond: , K:heart: .
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB raises to $1.10, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.55, SB calls $1.45.

      Flop: ($5.2) A:heart: , 5:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($5.2) T:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.20, Hero calls $1.20.

      River: ($7.6) A:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.20, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $7.6.

      Villain is 19/18/5.0 3bt ~ 200 hands

      Should I c-bet this flop? What hands does he flat a 4bet oop?
      As played, fold river or call? Getting 7.33:1 on a call, but the bet just screams thin value to me.
      How about bluff shove river to rep flush?

      Only hand that a reasonable player might consider flatting 4 with is surely AK or slowplayed AA. AQ and lower gets chucked, and PP cannot call for set value.

      Flatting here with 22-KK is mental.

      So if the player is reasonable, we are beaten 100%.

      Edit - river play - you have 0% fold equity against trips+ here and no hope of representing a flush. To have a flush here you would have had to have 4bet KQs or something like that.

      Hello DailyDollarPro,

      Flop: Nah, I don't think that there is any point to bet the flop. Not many worse hands will Call you anyways here. Most of his calling range did hit.
      River: No way you can bluff-shove here. You are never gonna make a better hand to fold. You just can't represent much. If he has the trips he is definitely going to Call you. I'd rather give it up, I don't really see what kind of hands we beat here. Even for the given odds I'd be rather inclined to fold. Most likely just tries to block-bet with Ax or get thin value.

      Best regards.
