      I know the hands i post are much (will right 2 posts) but as i started to play SH i get in more spots to thin valuebet.
      Sometimes it doesn't work and i feel stupid but it should be still the best desicion most of the time.

      It's an important topic and i really want your opinion on this.
      Just write something about the hands were you either don't think a thinvaluebet is ok or if you don't like the betsize.

      All are played fine.
      I think you can also valuebet with KK, since if you´re going to loose anyway on the river against flush, two pair or straight. You find out by betting river+ he can always call you down with worse hands (like QJ, JT) so in value you don´t really loose anything. Just he doesn´t really have there bluffs and his valuebetting range likely isnt´Tx and weaker hands, so river goes very often check/check.
