      Thoughts? Due to it being blind wars (iirc villain had a solid resteal%, so assume he resteals wider than a typical NL10 tagfish) I decided to float the flop. The turn king convinced me he probably doesn't have one and turns my float line into a value-bet, hoping for Tx type hands.

      Street the river? Or take the free showdown, in case he is ice-cold slowplaying a big king / calling down a king with kicker trouble?

      Hello Jaissica,

      Preflop: What's the opponents 3bet? As I see he is definitely playable opponent. Why? Since he is easily giving up postflop, according his WTSD. What about his CBet flop/turn? According to that I'd act also. If they both are rather high then I might even prefer folding here be better. Also our JT ain't that great of a hand. Might only have few blockers. But of course depends what's the opponents 3bet?

      As played
      Postflop: As your plan was preflop to overplay him postflop then you can't really fold it on flop. :) But as played I'd still bet a bit bigger on turn ~$3,50 to protect from any kind of draws. And most likely I'd Check it behind. We can't be sure that we even have fold equity against something like JJ/QQ or even AA.

      Best regards.
