      SB: $9.95 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 28, 3B: 13, AF: 3,7, Hands: 149
      Hero (BB): $10.00 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 4,7, Hands: 27584
      CO: $9.85 - VPIP: 7, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 14
      BTN: $26.96 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 28, 3B: 13, AF: 3,7, Hands: 149

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with K :spade: A :spade:
      CO raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.10, CO calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.25) 4 :heart: 4 :club: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, CO calls $1.20

      Turn: ($4.65) 3 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($4.65) J :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      This seems to be very very misplayed.

      Is this even a good spot to cBet? Sure we have backdoors but no better hand is folding there really and although it would be cool to fold out his Ax and broadway range that missed, but his range also often consists of medium PPs that might note even fold to 2 barrels.

      As played:

      Should really have bet the turn as well with the massive additional equity that we have in the hand.

      Hello Avatars91,

      CBetting is fine but though I don't understand why ain't you 2nd barreling with such extra improvement equity, kinda must to 2nd barrel if we CB here. If you play this way then rather Check/Fold right on the flop.

      Best Regards.

      1) If we compare this situation to this one: NL10: AJ squeeze + bad cBet?

      Is the reasoning behind cBetting this flop and not the one in the link as follows:
      In this situation we have a backdoor FD, some backdoor gutshots, a stronger Ax hand and the board is generally slightly drier + the opponent does not seem as loose, whereas in the situation that I posted all we have is 2 overcards with just gutshot backdoor equity vs a possibly loose player on a slightly wetter flop?

      Or are there some other factors that determine the difference. Is there one main factor that seperates the two spots the most?

      You can't compare them at all, they are totally different. :P We CB this board mainly for the few reasons you pointed out and it's clearly that we could even be ahead here with our hand vs unknown + we have still fold equity + especially what comes into handy is backdoor draws.
