      I think I would ch/c turn and c/f river against fish. You have still descent equity against a hand like KQ, but you don't want to b/c here.

      some questions if you play ch/c turn:

      1. What would you do on a J river?
      2. What would you do on a :spade: river?
      3. What would you do on a A river?

      Further question:

      How would you play this hand against an strong reg.

      I like the c/c turn c/f river line.

      1. - I would db/fold, I don't want to give the fish a chance to cbh Kx.
      2. - db also, don't want the fish to cbh a weak :spade: that he might call with
      3. - On an A I dont think there is that much value in betting, and villain will not bet worse if we check, so c/f.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Betting clearly wouldn't achieve much unless we doing it as a block-bet to avoid him betting huge. Though I'd rather Check it and might even see him Checking behind. Vs his sizing we clearly also have implied odds so I don't mind the Check/Call & Check/Fold line.

      Best Regards.
