      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 9
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.15) 7 2 7 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.35) Q (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.35) K (2 players)
      CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Not sure if my line was ok, I'm sure this guy would bet river with any Ax hand, but I might take the lead on turn.
      Would have betted river if it hadn't been a K, K and Q was not the best for me, he could steal with those broadways aswell.

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine of course.

      Calling his flop cbet is ok. Raising will be overplaying and folding is out of question versus one bet.
      What are you going to do if the turn comes K :club: and he bets again?

      On the turn I prefer to bet for the following reasons:
      - I don't mind to take the pot versus AK for example
      - he might call us with worse hands like PPs or FD which he did not bet
      - I think he most often bets better hands
      - we can take free showdown and don't get to call a river bet

      On the river I will fold.
      Of course if you are sure that he is betting any Ax calling is fine, but without any info I prefer dolding.

      Best,
      Plamen

      This guy will not check raise without the best hand.
      If he bets a K :club: on the turn, I would give up, I would give up on the Q :heart: aswell, however was not entirely sure if I was ahead, and felt his range was big enough to call his 2/3 bet on river.

      And I also got a confirmation of what his CO steal range is, also a reason for calling?

      Well I'd rather call again if the turn is K :club: because he could still have worse hands there (PPs/FD) and also this is a good card for him to bluff.
      On Q :heart: I'd fold if he bets.

      Well as I said before, I don't really think people would bluff here in those spots quite often in order to justify a call.

      But since you have 800 hands you might have some reads on him (for example you said that you are sure that he bets Ax here) and if so calling is fine.
