      Flop very dry, decided not to cbet flop, but turn and river instead if nothing spectacular opens.

      Hi lood,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop: If he appears fishy why not cbet the flop? We can bet 1/2 pot and still get called by plenty worse.

      Against fish we want to bet/bet/bet for value

      Turn: As played we can even raise here because we under-played our hand but calling against unknown is fine tool.

      River: Since we know nothing about villain and we took a weird line we are in a tough spot. However, after a closer look, his range is very polarized here.

      I can't imagine him shoving a Kx hand so he either has KQ, set or nothing. Considering that a potential scare card came down (for our range since we seem to be on a weak pair) I can see some players trying to bluff us here.

      Since he reps such a narrow range for value (he may not even shove sets anyway) I would probably call him here but we should avoid getting ourselves in these spots by betting flop/turn.

      For example if we bet flop and he calls and then he ck/raises turn we can easily let go of the hand.
