      UTG: $11.60 (23.2 bb)
      MP: $55.71 (111.4 bb)
      CO: $63.66 (127.3 bb)
      BTN: $23.93 (47.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $51.54 (103.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q K
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BTN folds, Hero calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 6 Q 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.75, Hero calls $1.75

      Turn: ($7) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      River: ($14) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8, Hero calls $8


      Anon table.

      CO played 32/25 after 110 hands, AFq F-T-R 32-35-27, wtsd 36

      Preflop I thought I could flat KQo even oop against his wide CO steal range, instead of narrowing down to his 3bet calling range...

      Flop/turn easy ch/call I guess.

      River? It's not the best spot for him to 3rd barrel after I called on such a scarecard turn, and all I beat is a bluff now...

      Hi,

      Thoughts on check/raising turn? It will put him in a very tough spot with Ax, so he will fold almost his entire range (everything except flushes and sets). We also have some nice equity if we're called.

      On the river I kinda wanna check/shove, but I'm not sure he's valuebetting many aces in this spot which polarizies in range towards stronger value hands (that prob are more relucantant to bet/fold), so I guess just fold. Don't expect him to bluff with this sizing super often either. So yeah, check/fold river is probably best as played.

      ifs

      Thanks, sounds like a great idea, I didnt really think about that during play tbh...
