      Hero (UTG): $50.00 -
      MP: $158.53 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 3.9, Hands: 291
      CO: $50.00 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 1.6, Hands: 96

      BB: $44.34 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 9, 3B: 5, AF: 0.7, Hands: 47

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with K :spade: K :heart:
      Hero raises to $1.75, MP calls $1.75, 4 folds

      Flop: ($4.25) 2 :heart: A :diamond: 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $3.00, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($10.25) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($10.25) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $5.00, Hero calls $5

      Thought that villain can go for thin value on the river w TT-QQ and I also don't expect him to flat many aces MP vs UTG.

      Any ways to play the hand? I was planning on x/c 3 streets.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Doubt that you going to see there very often a bluff, most likely he just Checks behind the turn to get value from you on the river with Ax. If he really wanted to bluff I would assume him rather going for 2nd barrel.

      Any thin value goes Check behind on the river, so your hope is to see a bluff.

      Best Regards.

      I agree on this. So it would be good to x/c 3 streets but x/f river after he checks back turn, right?

      Kindish, that's usually my plan but that also depends a lot on the dynamics and reads I have on him.
