      MP2: $18.05 (180.5 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $12.32 (123.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K :spade: K :club:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, CO raises to $0.90, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) 8 :spade: 2 :club: 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.35, Hero calls $1.35

      Turn: ($4.65) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.68, Hero calls $2.68

      River: ($10.01) Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $7.13, Hero?

      I choose to flat the 3bet preflop as villain's 3bet range is probably AA,KK,QQ,Aks, given how tight villain is a 4bet gets shoved on by Aces and elicits folds form QQ,Aks(I dont think villain will stack off with those hands preflop, especially with a little extra stack depth.)

      My plan was to X/C to river to get maximum value from QQ, and to limit loses from AA.

      Is my thought process/line appropriate?

      Hello burgermeister,

      Disagree about the river Check/Call cause he is just going to Check behind those hands as JJ/QQ and you don't get value from them in long run. :) I'd rather get it in earlier like on turn and might even protect from draws/Ace.

      And as played we fold the hand on the river, what do you beat there? Just a bluff or would you assume he is capable of having something like AQ which plays this way?

      Best Regards.
