      Hero (CO): $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 65799

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :spade: Q :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 1 fold, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 7 :diamond: K :heart: A :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.70) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.70) J :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB folds

      Ought to be well played. Was wondering though, if it maybe even makes sense to just bet on the turn already to protect vs some GS + weaker Kx hands and then check/behind river?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems to be fine, we still have thin value-bet on the river from worse pairs as even maybe even Kx hands. Any stronger hands would have Bet earlier.

      Best Regards.

      1) I would assume that it is not exactly a standard for such villains to suddenly bluff the river, right? And thus we would probably have to just fold vs a river bet in this spot.

      2) Can we not bet already on the turn for a free showdown to protect vs weaker Kx or GS combos? Or is it still possible for villain to check his Ax hand twice in that spot?

      Yes, we wont see really that many bluffs in those spots.

      2) Can we not bet already on the turn for a free showdown to protect vs weaker Kx or GS combos? Or is it still possible for villain to check his Ax hand twice in that spot?

      Both options are fine. Doubt though that the guy will have many draws.
