      UTG+2 is extremely passive: VPIP=53%, PFR=1%, AF=0.4, WTSD=43% over 131 hands. He rarely folds bottom pair when is heads-up OTF or OTT, sometimes gives up OTR.

      sB: $9.88 (98.8 bb)
      BB: $9.10 (91 bb)
      UTG+1: $9.94 (99.4 bb)
      UTG+2: $12.31 (123.1 bb)
      MP1: $10 (100 bb)
      MP2: $14.06 (140.6 bb)
      MP3: $35.74 (357.4 bb)
      CO: $6.44 (64.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $12.28 (122.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.95) 8 6 J
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $0.50, UTG+2 calls $0.50

      Hmm... I don't think that c-bet is standard vs this type of opponents. Although we probably still have enough equity against his huge range, right?

      Turn: ($1.95) 9
      UTG+2 checks, Hero checks

      Not a very good card for me, better check the hand down if i don't improve and of course fold to every type of bet he may make.

      River: ($1.95) K
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $0.40

      There is some value to be made here. Is the sizing fine, or should i have gone for more?

      Hi Erevos,

      Preflop: looks fine, since he is a station we can raise even bigger

      Flop: Since he doesn't fold BTM pair our cbet is thin. Does he fold Ax? If he doesn't then of course we can cbet.

      Turn: Can't really get him to fold anything on the 9x.

      River: Since we checked the turn I can expect villain to call river very light and I would bet a lot larger than the 0.40 you put in. I'd make it at least $1.2 or so.
