      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      UTG: $5.92
      MP: $14.43
      CO: $24.63
      BTN: $25.50
      SB: $26.57
      Hero (BB): $25.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.37) Hero is BB with K :diamond: A :spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.50, BTN calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.12) 8 :spade: Q :heart: K :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, BTN raises to $6.75, Hero calls $3.75

      Turn: ($18.62) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.15, Hero raises to $15.75, BTN folds


      BTN



      I didnt want to 3bet the flop to fold out all his bluffs. On the turn I went for the chR, if he takes one more stab at the pot, that's probably the most I can get out of his air, but I didnt want to see a T/J rivercard, nor risking a checkbehind on the river.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      If he is super aggressive I'd turn my hand into bluff-catcher right on the flop instead of CBetting it. But assuming he is representing a very narrow range your play is fine after you CB.

      Best Regards.

      hey veriz,

      Isn't cbetting good? Cause he might easily raise us and with it we just make the pot bigger (and that's better for us offcourse).

      I wrote my evaluation. :) There is bigger value by Check/Calling vs those opponents.
