      I thought flop was so dry heads up I wanted to give villain a chance to either bluff the turn or hit something.

      When the king hits I think this is definitely in villains 2pair or top pair range and am happy to commit all my chips.

      Not sure I played this too badly looking back? I can't see what villain could have that I would be scared of on the flop except his exact 2 cards.

      Hello Phildini,

      Super-Standard CBet on flop. No way I am going to Check there. :) No trapping while even being OOP. But as played nothing much to add as you went for such a play. Also vs not even full stack I am not folding either.

      Best regards.
