      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $10.80
      Hero (BTN): $10.96
      SB: $10.83
      BB: $12.54
      UTG: $10.97

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.35, Hero raises to $1.05, fold, fold, CO calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.25, 2 players) K:diamond: T:spade: J:spade:
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.00, CO calls $2.00

      Turn: ($6.25, 2 players) 3:spade:
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($6.25, 2 players) K:club:
      CO bets $7.75, Hero calls $7.75

      CO shows Q:spade: Q:club: (Two Pair, Kings and Queens) (Pre 57%, Flop 27%, Turn 11%)
      Hero shows K:spade: A:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 43%, Flop 73%, Turn 89%)
      Hero wins $20.30

      Villain is 43/15 over 80 hands.

      Pre flop and flop is pretty standard.

      On the turn I decided to check behind for some pot control. If he didn't have me beat yet, the flush now came in so I could easily be beat. I don't expect him to call another bet with a worse hand very often.

      On the river then... I think I should have folded, tbh. I guess I called because villain was kind of spewy, so I was basically hoping for him to have some sort of random pair + draw that he wanted to spazz out with.

      But I think I should have folded.

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks good although we can also make it slightly bigger versus the big fish.

      Flop:Large cbet on this board is fine.

      Turn: I don't like checking back the turn. We can easily bet/fold versus a fish as he has quite a few worse hands that can still call. For example KQ, JQ, QQ, QT, AsT, AsJ, etc.

      So I'd bet fold $3.5-$4.

      As played river is thin. He polarizes his range a bit there to a bluff or flush+. Sometimes he may play a KQ like this though so that makes a call probably ok.
