      BB: $53.25 (106.5 bb)
      MP1: $20.75 (41.5 bb)
      MP2: $64.40 (128.8 bb)
      MP3: $111.25 (222.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $64.20 (128.4 bb)
      BTN: $97.35 (194.7 bb)
      SB: $57.90 (115.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BTN raises to $4.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $12, BTN calls $7.50

      Flop: ($24.75) Q 6 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11, BTN calls $11

      Turn: ($46.75) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $15, Hero ?

      Villain is ok reg, 14/11/4, 3bet vs hero 9%, likes to do it IP, so I put in the 4bet with the blockers, and made it a bit on the large size because we are a little deep. On the flop I bet to protect against AK. Once he calls there just give it up? Check-fold no matter what? He must have slowplayed KK or AA, I don't see him bet turn with AQ in that spot. Or the 1 combo left of QQ.

      Hey Circoflax,

      With such a wet board I think that I would have some difficulty folding now.

      Whats really important is the hands we have seen him 3betting you in the (9%) has any gone to showdown? Have you seen any q10, qj kind of hands or has it been some A2s kind of blocker 3bets?

      If we have seen any middling cards or broadways then I would continue calling on the turn.

      He could also have a hand like 1010/JJ that he is betting for protection from AK.

      Hey pleno,

      Don't you think it's better to change our hand in a bluffcatcher and induge a bluff?

      And don't you also think that if de bet the flop for value we should also bet the turn?

      I think betting again is a viable option.

      If we bet again we get potential value from JJ/1010 and also vs all the draws.

      If we check he probably checks a lot and we dont charge him for his draws.

      If we bet and he goes all in we have to call and its a little higher variance even though we are ahead of his range.

      I personally love variance so b/call > c/call :)
