      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has T:heart: T:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.35, fold

      Flop: ($0.90, 2 players) K:heart: 3:diamond: 4:diamond:

      River: ($5.90, 2 players) 9:club:
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Hero shows T:heart: T:spade: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 54%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
      UTG shows K:spade: Q:spade: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 46%, Flop 91%, Turn 95%)
      UTG wins $5.61

      UTG player:

      Flop: I decided to rr because:
      - this hand was to strong to fold
      - if I had called I would have been out of position so after another bet on the turn I would have to fold
      - high cbet % so he did it with a lot of hands
      - I had nice fold equity

      Besides of the fact that I lost this pot I can see few pluses.
      - now I'm aware of that this player doesn't fold TPTK
      - I made nice image, that I rr with not only monsters hands
      - I will use it in the future against this player when I have monster

      Hello BGawli,

      Well, his CB range will be there anyways pretty wide so I don't even mind to Check/Raise it. We might even sometimes make better hands like JJ/QQ to fold which he is also CBetting.

      Although depending on the opponent I'd also consider either to even sometimes maybe 2nd barrel or not. By just Check/Raising the flop you might not make a TP to fold since the board is still drawy and he might realize that as well.

      Best Regards.

      check/raise flop is new play in my game so I'm learning about it.
      I'm aware of that I made a lot of mistakes but as I said it's new for me.
      In my opinion this play would have been better if I had been IP than OOP. He would have hard time to call OOP with TPGK.

      You shouldnt setmine if you think you can get opponent to fold on flops that hit his range.

      It seems you were right to setmine, because he wasnt folding his tp. For that reason I wouldnt ch/ra bluff here.
