      My question is with these kind of toip pair/mid kicker to no kicker hands, is playing the hand like this (no turn bet, calling half pot sized river bet, or small river bet) ok?

      Or should I just bet the turn and check behind on the river? Assuming there is no edge in bluff inducing a river bet or fold equity for the turn bet.

      Guy was only 2 hands old, but had 4 bet with KQs.

      Given villain seems to be a fish I would tend to bet smallish for value on the turn against his worse Ax, Kx, FD's and possible gutshots. Think your line is fine as well as long as you bet river when checked to but I would rather bet turn against a fish.

      When he bets out that small on the river its an easy call for me as you need to win 30% to make a profit.

      Hello jules97,

      Rather 2nd barrel the turn and protect your hand and do it for free showdown instead of Checking behind and then facing a huge Bet on the river. But if you do Check behind then of course we ain't planning to fold.

      Best Regards.
