      This was a hand in the first orbit, so I didn't have information on Villain.

      I think the flop c-bet is fine...

      I decide to second barrel the turn because he really can't have a strong hand. KJ of KQ is possible, perhaps KT...though I think most players would 3bet KQ(o) from the SB. (not always of course).

      He also has to fold every Qx hand (QJ, QT...). After the call I plan to give up on the river but of course not when I hit my set.

      I think the raise on the river is ok because he has shown he has a reasonably strong hand and I expect to be called by 55/KQ. I really wasn't afraid of a flush...

      Without information on villain i just cf flop here.

      In general this board hits a passive defending range quite nicely. Plenty of Qx or Kx around.

      If he can float with hands like T9 AT/AJ it becomes even more ugly.

      If he is quite fit or foldish u can bet once to get out all PPs below Qx and his trash. might be enough FE depending on how wide his Pre-range really is.

      Turn: just checkfold. He might call with Qx again and if so you more or less have zero FE. Even if it may not be enough. Preferably do this play with T9/AT/AJ. there u got more outs. 88 looks pretty random.

      R. i broke here too. no question about it.

      Hello darko163,

      Flop: Check behind the flop cause you ain't making any better hands to fold there and a lot of broadways did hit there.

      As played
      Turn: What worse hands do you even make to fold, especially vs a loose opponent?

      As played
      River: Not much to comment, ship it.

      Best Regards.
