      On Game, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $25.43 (50.9 bb)
      BB: $49 (98 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      MP: $70.08 (140.2 bb)
      CO: $21.54 (43.1 bb)
      BTN: $67.66 (135.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T J
      Hero raises to $1.75, MP calls $1.75, 4 folds

      Flop: ($4.25) 3 T K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($9.25) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $6, Hero calls $6

      River: ($21.25) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $18, Hero calls $18

      I think I should be just x/folding turn. guy does not look that aggressive and K is not a good card to bluff on for the average reg. I would bluff on it as I don't think players x/c flop with Kx but I think I overthought this hand by expecting this average looking guy to go barmy on me here.

      Hi Demarcohsp.

      While I often advocate checking here (cos it's hard to gain value from worse and bluff out better), I think against a decent player betting might be better (or not).

      Then on the Turn we can c/c some blank turn cards, especially this particular Turn. It makes it easier to play in general when we bet. My advice may sound conflicting, but i think betting Flop is better against better players (who will not misplay/overplay/bluff too much vs a flop check)

      I think you can definitely c/c 2 streets as played, maybe even river if he barrels. But this has to be one of the worse rivers to call. You'll need him to be on a pure bluff. So many hands got there including AQ AJ QJ and I think he can also have KQ KJ KT TT 33 quite often.

      Given starting positions, i think he only has strong broadways and pocektpairs. I don't think people bluff pocketpairs here when checked to for 3 streets all too often. So this is a clear c/f on River.

      So if i were in your shoes I either bet F c/c T c/f R or c/c F c/c T c/f R
