      BTN ($7.61) 190bb
      HERO (SB) ($4.18) 105bb
      BB ($2) 50bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) HERO is SB A:heart: A:spade:
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.04, HERO raises to $0.22, BB calls $0.18, BTN folds

      Flop: K:club: A:diamond: 4:heart: ($0.48, 2 players)
      HERO bets $0.28, BB folds

      Stats/Reads:
      Villain is 17/14, 66h

      PRE
      I think, BB is calling with this range:
      JJ-22,AQo-AJo,KQo-KJo,AQs-AJs,KQs-KJs

      Of course, Ax is less likely

      FLOP
      I hope, he`s got Kx and I value-bet.

      Maybe delayed c-bet would be better? Most of his range is pocketpairs, which will fold the flop almost always. But he will call/raise on the turn, if he improves to sets/2 pair.

      If I check the flop, he will call the turn with Kx anyway.

      So, I think, that checking the flop is the best option.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Just Bet it yourself, Checking will make look your hand exactly like it is, we still may protect from GS and get value from Kx and maybe even sometimes just Ax.

      Best Regards.

      By checking, it also might look like a PP.
      Then again, this is NL4 and opponent might not think at all :)

      I`m not afraid of GS, because OPP is pretty tight and will only call PRE with suited QJ & QT.

      By checking the flop, I`m not loosing any value, if he`s got the Kx. I can delay the c-bet and also allow him to improve.

      Well, he isn't going to pay you much anyways if he doesn't have a made hand. ;) You could maybe even gain more value by just CBetting yourself and not make look your hand face up.
