      BTN: $69.35 (138.7 bb)
      SB: $15.50 (31 bb)
      BB: $52.22 (104.4 bb)

      MP: $88.60 (177.2 bb)
      Hero (CO): $54.75 (109.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:heart: K:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) K:spade: K:heart: 6:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Hero bets $6, BTN calls $6

      River: ($21.75) 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $15.50, BTN calls $15.50

      Villain: 21/17 3bet: 6.8 (66k hands)
      Fold to flop cbet: 57%
      Bet vs missed cbet flop: 44
      WTSD: 23%
      W$SD%: 49
      AF: 4.0

      I decided given his high fold to cbet, I'd check it, see very little reason for betting and watch him fit fold every time, besides he had decent AF and although stab 44% isn't much, it's still a bit above average.

      On the river, I am just trying to get paid by a worse king although not super likely since I block one and two are out on the board, but also gain a bit of extra value against Pocket nines.

      I donk turn to regain initative so that he can't check behind, should he have a pocket pair or something.

      not really sure how to play this one, I know my line isn't too far off, but might defo be better ways of playing it.

      Hello axelphoney,

      That's not really high (fold to CB). I'd definitely rather CB myself instead of play vs such a missed CB Bet which is instead rather way too small. Easy Bet/Bet/Bet line here. Makes our hand more obvious if we take this line, at least for me it would be, easy and snap-fold whatever hand I have on the river unless I have FH or strong Kx.

      Best Regards.
