      wouldn't mind betting the flop right away unless you are scared of getting raised

      i think turn is fine but maybe don't bet so big.
      River seems a little big as well. KJ got there too. In order to remain >50% equity against his calling range we need to bet smaller to ensure that we keep his calling range wide. Fishes look at 35% pot size bets and just shrug-call all the time.

      In this case if we bet 35% river you are not concerned about getting bluff raised?

      Hello livethelife7,

      I like the play and I don't see any reason to CB such a flop whilst we rarely going to have enough of fold equity nor equity vs the range calls us. Though I am not a huge fan of such a Bet size on the river unless we are against a huge fish, I'd go over something like 1/2 pot size up to 60% max.

      Best Regards.
