      Hero ???


      When reviewing this hand, I thought:
      He only calls pre if he has something. He has a v good winrate.
      He only calls CBet if he has a hand.

      So, should I continue to raise, or should I be playing this way ahead/way behind, since
      if he does have a set or two pr I'm behind, but I'm ahead against all other overpairs, straight and flush draws.

      When he calls the CBet, his range would be:
      KK,77-66,AKs,A7s-A6s,K7s-K6s,AKo,A7o-A6o,K7o-K6o
      I don't think this player would call a UTG raise w/ suited connectors or suited As
      I think he would fold 88-QQ here.

      i doubt he has many Kx 2pairs in his range on that board - especially if he has a good winrate as you say. I think you should definitely be betting 2/3rds pot on the turn and the plan would be bet/fold. on the river if all draws brick then you can check/call - he will probably bet with a Kx hand and possibly with a busted draw (depending on how many he has in his range). if you don't think he has many draws then i prefer bet/fold turn and check/fold river. he seems to be set mining a lot so i think thats a reasonable line. he seems passive too so he'll probably check a top pair he's not sure about.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Bet the flop bigger & then also Bet the turn, we need to protect and get value from worse hands. :)

      Best Regards.
