      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BB: $67.03 (134.1 bb)
      MP: $56.17 (112.3 bb)
      CO: $25.62 (51.2 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $63.65 (127.3 bb)
      SB: $54.34 (108.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      MP raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero raises to $5, 2 folds, MP calls $3.50

      Flop: ($10.75) Q 3 6 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $5.50, MP calls $5.50

      Turn: ($21.75) 2 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $10.50, MP calls $10.50

      River: ($42.75) K (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero ??? (35.17$ left)

      Anon table.

      MP played 28/28 after 50h, foldto3bet 0/1 so far.

      Postflop plan was to barrel at least twice to make him fold middle pockets like JJ/TT/99.
      On the river his range is mainly AQ/KQ/QJs/QTs, maybe slowplayed sets, or sometimes stubborn pockets (99-JJ).
      I cant really push for value, right? KQ got there, other Qx would probably fold, lower pairs would definitely fold.
      Vbet/fold? If yes, what sizing? 12$?
      Is checkbehind a weak option here?

      like you stated i can't see many worse hands calling here. i think we are called so few times with worse when we jam, and even when we vbet small. i think checking back here is best due to awkward stack sizes for a small vbet. (i might even consider betting ~$8 if we know villain almost never x/jams river as a bluff here

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      You ain't gonna get called from a lot worse hands, therefore betting the river ain't gonna achieve much. Rather would turn your hand into bluff. :P

      Best Regards.
