      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $0.68
      SB: $2.65
      Hero (BB): $2.20
      UTG: $1.93
      MP: $4.44
      CO: $1.00 Only 12 hands but VP 33 / PF 17 / AS 50 / CB 0 (out of 1 times)

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has K:club: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.06, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13, 2 players) 7:spade: 5:heart: K:heart:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.29, 2 players) 8:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.18, Hero calls ?

      PF : I haven't really delved into blind as of yet defence yet but I just think folding KQ in the BB is really weak.

      F: I call as I think villain might bet 88-QQ here in order to try to take the pot down so I'm ahead of his range. Maybe a raise to take it down here would be best, but am I overplaying my hand?

      T: If call, what would be your plan for the river.

      I really need to brush on flop skills when I don't have initiative but focusing on pre-flop play this weak but this hand keeps popping up so I best nip it in the bud.

      Thanks for great work guys!

      Hey Raknyo,

      I m not a Zoom expert but still I think a X/R is against his wider range and stack seems to me like a decent option. But watch out to make the raise that large so you can shove most turns.

      As played:
      Well, a call with this odds and TPGK seems to me like a must. But it is diffuclt to say how to approach river. In poker it is very often ''it depends''. But I guess if a no brainer comes I would donk myself for like 0,2$ and then fold to a shove. I think we still have that much room.

      Best regards,
