      villain playing 13/10/2.9 AF/2.8 3bet/11% raise cbet through 50 hands
      villain is also full stacked with 100bb, not 65ish bb like hem says

      vs tight player i go for delayed cbet in this spot vs pocket pairs/sds/and to induce vs bluffs

      i bet turn tiny to induce, and to get calls from a weaker range. villain decides to make a small xr. i call turn with the intention of calling any river that isnt an A/8/6.

      villain bombs river and i end up folding. but what i had an issue with was: if villain has a value hand he most likely either leads turn, or check raises bigger, and when A scare card comes i would assume he would bet smaller with straights/sets to get value from Kx hands.

      all in all is fold appropriate vs particular villain on river?

      just cbet the flop imo :P

      since this is a flop you will cbet a huge % of the time being ip you always have some showdown value when you check behind.
      so your range is full of bad Kx, reasonable pockets, and maybe a few slowplays.

      he might expect you to delay cbet Kx there so he goes for c/r again.
      now well, you just put yourself into that spot. i think the hand plays MUCH better with a cbet flop, i doubt he ever folds 9x at least

      Hello yougotfelted51,

      As you would normally CB most of your range on such a flop do that as well with your Kx hands than make such a play and then even never know where you stand with it.

      Best Regards.
