      CO: $32.12

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with K :club: K :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.35) 8 :heart: 2 :diamond: 7 :heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.01, CO calls $1.01, BTN folds

      Turn: ($3.37) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, CO calls $2

      River: ($7.37) A :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.68, Hero folds

      CO is a 26/9 AF 0.8 over 711 hands

      So i think flop and turn are pretty standard vs 99-QQ and flushdraws Axh, 9T

      I decide to c/f the river. His flushdraw hands mostly contain Ax, 99-QQ would just c back here, he is so passive so i dont think he would turn a straight draw into a bluff here. He could aswell have a slowplayed 2 pair or set.

      Any thoughts?

      Seems to me like set or JJ ,QQ or AK type of hands. You can see alot of players on these limits having a hard time to fold JJ ,QQ or AK so they just call down with a low board hoping you don`t have anything and hoping to hit something themselves. On the turn I would actually bet stronger like 80% or 90% of the pot

      Ace on the river actually is a good card for him if he has JJ or QQ and you actually give the man a chance to bluff at you after checking river since you show that youre afraid of the ace by checking.

      Note that villain has AF 0.8, also this works as a scare card, if i bet it i might get some folds i dont want. just risking money vs better hands.

      If we knew villain was capable of blufing i like a check call here to let him bluff worse hands. Dont see any point in betting here tho.

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      Bet bigger on the turn and protect your hand there. But otherwise of course kind of ugly spot I would either just block-bet myself there or just Check/Fold it, doubt that he is bluffing much while even having very passive play-style.

      Best Regards.
