      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $8.55 (85.5 bb)
      MP: $15.48 (154.8 bb)
      CO: $10.32 (103.2 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      2 folds, CO calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.25) K 6 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, CO calls $0.85

      Turn: ($2.95) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.95, CO raises to $4.10, Hero calls $2.15

      I usually fold here putting the other guy on 2pair+ since not much else could be raising me here and I've been told I'm a massive nit so decided to actually call and see a showdown.

      Normally what I think is, slowplayed KJ could raise me here. 66 could raise here maybe got lucky with 55.

      Doubt QT would raise, would have done it on the flop itself, I don't need to worry a lot about flush draws.

      So question is could he be bluffing here? Should I turn my hand into a bluff catcher or just give it up?

      If I x/c turn then I'll also be x/c river.


      River: ($11.15) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine and I'd make it 5bb.

      Betting the flop with TPTK is good here of course.

      Turn doesn't really change much and second barrel is good.
      When he raises I prefer folding. We are OOP and this call flop/raise turn lines are almost never bluff so just give it up here without any specific information.

      Best,
      Plamen
