      SB: $49.50 (99 bb)
      BB: $85.73 (171.5 bb)
      MP1: $50.19 (100.4 bb)
      MP2: $60.67 (121.3 bb)
      MP3: $54.32 (108.6 bb)
      CO: $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $65.69 (131.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K J
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB folds, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $2.75

      Flop: ($8.25) J 6 A (2 players)
      BB bets $8.25, Hero calls $8.25

      Turn: ($24.75) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($24.75) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $24.75, Hero ?????

      Villain plays 70/30/29 over 44 hands, AF=4.4, cbet flop 100, cbet turn 33. Not a big sample but seems like a gambler who has seen to many videos of Dwan.

      I wouldn't normally call a 3bet with KJo, but against this guy I made an exception in position. He snap pots the flop, so I can peel one having backdoor diamonds too. He checks the turn and I have so much showdown value that I don't like a bet here. Snap pots the river!

      I'm not beating anything but I have seen this type of betting with nothing so many times...

      once you called on the flop I think it is better bet yourself on the turn. You have pair+nut flushdraw, so you don´t really mind getting there all-in although I think a lot of times it will go either c/f or c/c after that you can check back on blank rivers.

      If you check back turn I would call his potsize river bet, he may easily be bluffing rather than valuebetting and I doubt he would do that with QQ/KK, so you´re likely against Ax or some kind of bluff (although your equity at general isn´t that big)

      board: AdJd6c3d2c
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      KdJc 51.45% 139 6
      30% 48.55% 131 6

      Best regards,
