      Hello, so villain calls from the button so his range is quite wide, suited connectors pocket pairs, broadways etc. I decide to bet/fold as the board is relatively dry and I figure I've got some equity against villains range. On the turn I've may have a double gutshot with the pair although Kx is in villains range, KT, KQ would only give me 6 outs and maybe 5 if we count flushdraw, but I didn't really consider this when betting so I cbet the turn. So I get my straight on the river so I bet, maybe I should of bet smaller. I'm giving up here right? Is check/fold here the better plan?

      Hello seanspurs87,

      You should already bet the river smaller cause you ain't getting called from a lot worse and afterwards pretty easy fold, even FD got there. :) We just splitting at the best with 9x.

      Best Regards.
