      This is really tough. Flop sucks. I might even bet/fold right away vs someone who doesn't raise Flop too light. We are just not doing well against any sort of well-balanced strong range. Of course if he's raising all straight draws including 88/99/AQ/KQ then we can't fold on the Flop.

      Turn improves AK but we have 2 Ks and he may/may not 3bet AK preflop so it's unlikely he has it. 89s got there already anyway, I doubt QJs raises the Flop, QTs wouldn't as well. So the Queen is ultimately a blank in my opinion (or it improves AQ/KQ to a 2nd best hand). Thus I'm not folding the Turn. Sizing looks so much like AQ/KQ to me

      River: Hmmm this is tricky. I initially thought there wasn't any value but now that i think about it if we are putting him mostly on AQ/KQ and don't give him credit for being tricky, then I think he never has a monster here cos he would bet the River himself. Thus he's going to c/c a ton here trying to catch your busted draws. So I bet halfpot and expect to get paid off a lot.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I like your play here and I'd play the same way, we still have even backdoors for FD and also SD. Nice hand! Plus his raise size doesn't really indicate to strength either. :)

      Best Regards.
