      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $117.03 (234.1 bb)
      UTG: $62.13 (124.3 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $93.11 (186.2 bb)
      BTN: $49.60 (99.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $104.93 (209.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BB raises to $4.50, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($9) 6 Q 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $6, Hero calls $6

      Turn: ($21) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($21) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BB calls $5

      Anon table.

      BB played 19/16 after 110 hands, 3bet 11%.

      I thought preflop calling is the best option, even oop. He is capable of 3betting me light in this spot, or even with a wider valuerange, but if I 4bet this deep, I'd probably isolate myself against a stronger range, and most likely has to fold to a 5bet/push.
      ChRaise flop? I have good equity, but going broke would be close this deep I think...
      Donk turn?
      On the river I bet small, cause J is the best flush he could have...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Clearly can't Check/Raise in that spot and go broke. :P It wont be profitable cause I expect the guy rather ship it with stronger hands mainly and Qx most likely play way ahead/behind.

      Though Check/Raising is possible as we also expect him to be 3betting loose, though also playing it this way is also fine whilst we may see Check behinds on the turn and at the same time if even not then our equity is still pretty good. Though I'd rather donk the turn and let him pay with some pair type of holdings and avoid him taking pot control which may happen very easily.

      Best Regards.
