      PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $29.48
      Hero (CO): $36.42
      BTN: $52.90
      SB: $31.26
      BB: $2.38
      UTG: $31.71

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has K:heart: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.75, fold, SB raises to $2.00, fold, Hero calls $1.25

      Flop: ($4.25, 2 players) T:diamond: Q:heart: A:diamond:
      SB bets $4.00, Hero calls $4.00

      Turn: ($12.25, 2 players) 5:club:

      SB bets $9.00, Hero calls $9.00

      River: ($30.25, 2 players) A:spade:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Two questions:

      1) I don't think I can shove river for value. Maybe a small value bet?
      2) I guess there is more value in shoving the turn? AQ/AT/QQ/TT will all go broke, maybe even AK?

      definitely raise at some point imo.
      i think i just raise/shove flop, he is probably willing to stack off twopair/set and some cards can kill the action.

      pre fold your hands sucks

      raise flop, you're deep so your perceived range is wider and weaker .... you want some nutz in raising range instead of sets to balance bluffs .. so yea gogo

      Hello awishformore,

      Preflop: What's the reason in first place to Call here? Of course the raise size is small but still you put yourself into those spots where you might be dominated without knowing much about the opponent. 4bet/Folding might even be better option here.

      As played
      Flop: Depends a lot on the opponent here either to raise it or not, if we assume him being capable of bluffing and having very wide range then we can as well keep his range & bluffs in the play but otherwise you could as well just raise it on the flop if vs total unknown.

      As played
      River: I would assume him Betting most of the time with FH so I'd just ship it for value vs Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
