      Opponent stats 26/26 AF:1 WTSD:60 W$SD:100 cbet f:40 after 38 hands.

      Bad player raises from MP3 I assume by his stats that he has pretty wide range so I decided to call with KQ in position.

      Flop is standart. On the turn I should bet bigger. What should be my bet size on the river?

      Hi,
      here are my thoughts on this hand

      PF: If this guy is looser and weak in general, you could 3bet KQ for thin value. If he was strong and solid with a relatively tighter range, then you could 3bet KQ as a bluff cos KQ wouldn't be strong enough to call. I know this might sound contradictory. But vs a looser player when i 3bet this for value, I would be willing to play for stacks with top pair whereas when I use KQ as a bluffing hand I would probably pot control if I do hit a K or Q at some point.

      Anyway calling is certainly fine if his range is wide enough.

      T: I suppose 1.50 is fine.

      River: I don't really know how strong he is at this point in time. Anywhere between 50-75% of the pot seems fine to me. You could bet larger though, since he has a high WTSD of 60% (but your sample is really small).
