      HI, villain 35/15/20 hands

      I'm trying to get used to a new limit & it feels like i'm being raised on the flop/ turn a TON!
      Is this an easy b/f? seemed too strong SB v BB, but im OOP & have no plan for later streets.

      I guess im just having trouble adjusting & am not sure how to handle being raised very often.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T:spade: K:spade:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.87, BB calls $0.62

      Flop: ($1.74) 7:club: J:spade: K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, BB raises to $3.15, Hero calls $1.95

      Turn: ($8.04) J:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($8.04) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Results: $8.04 pot ($0.36 rake)
      Final Board: 7:club: J:spade: K:diamond: J:club: 4:diamond:
      Hero showed T:spade: K:spade: and won $7.68 ($3.66 net)
      BB mucked 6:heart: K:heart: and lost (-$4.02 net)

      Hello dannywratten,

      I'd turn my hand into bluff-catcher in those spots over betting for value cause we can't be sure from how many hands we get value from. If I see the villain super-loose then Bet/Bet...

      But as played for the given odds while it's also BvB I wouldn't be leaving the pot alone either but I'd Bet the river for value ~1/2. :)

      Best Regards.

      thanks veriz :)
      Thats interesting, I thought it was almost a mandatory cbet here because I figured there would be enough worse Kx or Jx that will call. or maybe he could float.

      Would you cbet KQ in this same situation?

      Depends also on the opponent vs regs I could still even turn into bluff-catcher while there is much more value by that.
